Manchester engineers can take part in Tomorrow's Engineers Week

EngineeringUK and the Royal Academy of Engineering have called on engineers and engineering technicians in Manchester and across the UK to get behind plans for Tomorrow’s Engineers Week (4 to 8 November 2019, #TEWeek19).

Now in its seventh year, Tomorrow’s Engineers Week provides a unique opportunity for engineers, employers, universities and schools to showcase how engineers working in all sectors are on a mission to make the world a better place.

Highlights of the week include the first This is Engineering Day (Wednesday, 6 November) to challenge engineer stereotypes; films celebrating engineers on a mission to help the nation’s health and wellbeing; and the second Tomorrow’s Engineers Week Big Assembly.

Tomorrow’s Engineers Week provides an opportunity for the engineering community to work together to inspire the next generation of engineers. The number of professional engineering institutions, engineering employers and individual engineers who participate in this collective drive to raise the profile of engineers grows each year.

Whether it’s visiting a school to talk about engineering careers as part of the Big Assembly, staging an event to celebrate what engineers do, or supporting Tomorrow’s Engineers Week on social media, there are lots of ways to get involved.

To help the public better understand engineers and engineering, the Royal Academy of Engineering will create a public online photo library of more representative images of engineers, and launch a challenge to change the mix of images that appear when you search for ‘engineer’ online. 

The Academy is calling on the engineering community to get involved and contribute to the library. To make a contribution, or for more information, email the Academy.

Find out more and get involved through the Tomorrow's Engineers Week website.
