Tackling global challenges: new programme explores critical global role of engineering

Every day, engineers are powering the world around us.  With the population estimated to grow by 1 billion by 2030, our reliance on the engineering industry has never been greater for providing sustainable solutions to meet these growing demands.

Presented by ITN Productions’ reporter Donna Bernard, Engineering Tomorrow, Today invites commentary from those at the forefront of engineering endeavour to discuss the application of the industry on current and future global issues.  From tackling climate change to designing prosthetics, the programme explores the success stories from industry experts who are leading the way in innovation and education.
