Engineering careers booklet proving popular

Orders for a new Tomorrow’s Engineers careers booklet, From idea to career, which explores 12 areas of engineering, reached over 32,000 in the first fortnight following publication on 15 March 2017.

Designed for pupils aged 14 and above, the free booklet offers an overview of several different types of engineering, and outlines which subjects are useful, what they might learn about, what employees in various engineering spheres do, and earnings potential. 

Created in conjunction with the relevant Professional Engineering Institutions, the booklet also looks at where the jobs might be in 10 years’ time for people with STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) skills – from developing commercial space travel and managing cyber security, to meeting global energy demands and designing ‘a new breed’ of surgical robots. The choice of disciplines was based on data on the most common engineering degree courses.

EngineeringUK’s head of Careers, Eleanor Eyre, who coordinated the publication, said: “I am delighted that From idea to career is proving so popular. The aim was to create a concise resource that gives young people a real insight into engineering careers and the different ways to get into them. I hope it will support careers conversations, and inspire more people to consider putting their skills to use in engineering.”
