The variety of exciting, creative and stimulating careers in modern engineering is vast. And yet demand for engineers far exceeds supply – and only 9 percent of engineers in the UK today are women.  That is why we have launched the Engineer a Better World campaign. We must get more young people – including girls – interested in becoming engineers and we need your help.


Seven things you can do                 

  1. Visit IET Faraday to see the IET's collection of online engineering teaching resources
  2. Get involved with FIRST® LEGO®League, the IET’s global science and technology competition for teams of students
  3. Read about Tomorrow’s Engineers: Information and resources about the amazing careers available in engineering
  4. Explore Your Life: A campaign to ensure young adults in the UK have the maths and science skills needed to succeed in the current competitive global economy
  5. Attend an Engineering Open House Day. Check back next year for information on how to sign up for Engineering Open House Day 2016 and bring your children along for an educational, fun day out. If you work for an interesting venue that you would like to take part, contact
  6. Tune in: Listen to the IET's Techno Mum radio show on Fun Kids Live
  7. Join in the IET discussion in collaboration with @MumsnetBloggers during Tomorrow's Engineers Week on 4 November at 1pm, to ask an expert panel of engineers your tricky science or techy questions using the hashtag #AskTheEngineers
