Following on from the success of the “This Is Engineering” initial campaign earlier this year, the team is back with another round of clips and interviews.
This is Engineering is led by the Royal Academy of Engineering, in collaboration with EngineeringUK.
The team hope to show more young people what engineering really looks like, and how it could be an exciting and rewarding path for them in the future.
The series is built around short 30-60 second videos which are going out across Youtube as paid promotions. So far the channel has clocked over 3.3 million views and 500 subscribers.
The project is supported by BAE Systems, National Grid, Anglo American, BP, Centrica, Rolls-Royce, Shell UK, Siemens and BT; and sponsors Mott MacDonald and WSP. The scoping phase of the project was supported by Airbus, Atkins, Babcock, BAE Systems, GKN, Jaguar Land Rover and National Grid.
Alongside the short clips, the team have produced longer interviews. These dive into the detail and we are perfect for getting a bit more info about the various routes open to you in Engineering. They are well worth a watch.
