ITN Productions

The IET is heading up a new online programme on engineering from ITN Productions.

The IET has joined forces with ITN Productions to make a news programme to promote greater understanding of the central role engineering plays in our society and economy.

TV presenter Natasha Kaplinsky will present the programme, Working to Engineer a Better World, which will feature many different faces of engineering in the 21st Century – demonstrating how important engineering and technology have become to our everyday lives.

The programme will celebrate the success of innovative engineering and technology organisations and send a clear message to government that the industry is pivotal to future economic growth.

Working to Engineer a Better World will also be used to inspire more young people, particularly girls, to pursue a career in engineering – to help address the skills shortage currently facing the industry.

The programme will be premiered at the IET Innovation Awards on 19 November 2014 at the Brewery, London.
