Engineering UK 2016: The state of engineering

The Engineering UK report, now in its 18th year, analyses the engineering industry's capacity for growth and details engineering in education, training and employment. It provides the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) community, government, industry and the third sector with a compelling evidence base across the STEM continuum.  

There are three overriding messages from the report:

•  Firstly, that engineering and skilled engineers make a significant contribution to the UK economy and its productivity as well as working towards mitigating the grand global challenges of climate change, ageing populations, food, clean water and energy.

• Secondly, that the UK at all levels of education does not have the current capacity or the required rate of growth needed to meet the forecast demand for skilled engineers and technicians by 2022.

• Thirdly, through concerted and coordinated action, the engineering community, and employers in particular, can make a demonstrable difference by working with schools and colleges to inspire future generations to pursue relevant qualifications and go on to careers in engineering.
