Engineering will be put in the spotlight for 2018 as the government launches a campaign to inspire the next generation of engineers.

The Year of Engineering will see government and industry tackle a major skills gap. Engineering is one of the most productive sectors in the UK, but a shortfall of 20,000 engineering graduates every year is damaging growth.

Ministers from across government are joining forces with engineers, industry experts and hundreds of businesses to change perceptions around engineering – and highlight the scale of opportunity that careers in the industry hold for young people in the UK.

2018 will see a national drive in all corners of the country to inspire the young people who will shape the future and show them that a career in engineering is exciting, rewarding and creative.
