The demand for engineering talent has never been greater but with a noticeable skills shortage and perceptions of a male-dominated workforce to contend with – the industry could have a real challenge on its hands to attract the next generation of engineers.
Each year, the IET invests over £1m in awards and scholarships and education programmes such as Faraday and First Lego League, to encourage and support the engineers of the future. We are also busy planning this year’s Engineer a Better World campaign and our annual Skills and Demand in Industry Report – but we also work in partnership with other organisations to fly the flag for engineering.
We’re currently working with jobs board Jobsite who would like to find out from IET members what it’s really like to be an engineer.
We know that engineering is not just about hard hats and dirty overalls and that engineering is behind many of the things we take for granted in our daily lives. So his is your chance to dispel some of the myths about engineering and have your say on what engineering careers are really like.
The short questionnaire, which is open until Friday 31 March, will take around ten minutes of your time and you could win a £50 Amazon voucher. To complete the survey, please click here.
