Year of Engineering campaign logoAt Imperial College London every year is a celebration for engineering, but 2018 was particularly special. Over the course of the year, the government ran the Year of Engineering campaign to celebrate the fantastic achievements in the world of engineering, and as a leading faculty we joined the celebrations.

Year of Engineering: Imperial Enginuity

Imperial engineers, from students to academics, tell us what engineering means to them. To celebrate the Year of Engineering, they tell us how engineering makes the world a better place.

Celebrating engineering

Working in engineering is exciting, rewarding and creative. We need the next generation of innovators and problem solvers to join the industry and help shape the future of the world we live in.

From students to staff and alumni, we're all responsibile for helping to celebrate engineering and inspire future generations.

Nigel Brandon: “As we enter the Year of Engineering, there are some fantastic opportunities in front of us. We continue to invest in facilities, look to improve our curriculum and conduct research that strives to solve the world’s biggest challenges.”

Did you know?

The UK has the lowest percentage of female engineering professionals in Europe, at less than 10%, while Latvia, Bulgaria and Cyprus lead with nearly 30%. Meanwhile, 15.1% of engineering undergraduates in the UK in 2017 are women.

Imperial bucks this trend though, as women make up 26% of our engineering undergraduates and over 36% of our MSc students.
