Ones to Watch

A new report exploring six fast-growing industries that will drive the future employment of engineers and technicians in the UK.

The IET’s Ones to Watch report looks at six of the UK’s most promising and innovative engineering and technology industries where the UK is already among the global leaders – or has the potential to achieve that position in the near future. The six industries are: space, robotics, 3D printing, new energy networks, food manufacturing and cyber security.

Eleven senior-level representatives from the six industries put forward a compelling case for why these industries represent an enormous opportunity for the UK to build businesses with global capability – and create new jobs that can grow the UK economy. But, the report argues, to achieve their full potential, there are also some shared challenges to overcome: competition for skills, skills transformation, investment, faster adoption of new technology and diversity.
