What is it?

The year of Engineering is a new government campaign aimed at celebrating and promoting the world and wonders of engineering. Engineering touches every part of our lives. However, not enough young people – especially young girls – think it’s a world for them. As a result, the industry is struggling to recruit future talent.

What’s more, young people are missing out on the chance to make a positive difference to their futures.

Engineering in UK:

Engineering is one of the most productive sectors in the UK, but a shortfall of 20,000 engineering graduates every year is damaging growth. There is also widespread misunderstanding of engineering among young people and their parents/carers and a lack of diversity in the sector.

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.

Engineering at Studio@Deyes:

Are you a practical person who enjoys trying to find out how things work?

The Engineering sector employs 5.4million people in the UK. There are expected to be 2.56 million job openings in Engineering companies by 2022.

Young Engineers are therefore in high demand. The Liverpool City Region has an abundance of advanced manufacturing companies like Beverston Engineering, who are ready to employ and invest in future generations.

If you are ready to #makeIT in the Engineering sector at Studio@Deyes, you can expect to learn how to use industry standard equipment to prepare you for work placements and enhance your academic learning.

What's the goal?

A career in engineering is exciting, rewarding and creative. Over the course of 2018, the project aims to shake-up people’s ideas about engineering, inspiring the next generation of innovators, inventors and problem solvers by showing them what engineers actually do.

How is it going to happen?

Throughout 2018, with the help of engineers and hundreds of organisations, including museums, galleries, schools and brands, the government will be showcasing the world of engineering.

We will keep you up-to-date on all the latest events going on in our local area.
