About Us

This is Engineering is a campaign to bring engineering to life for young people, and give more people the opportunity to pursue a career that is rewarding, future-shaping, varied, well-paid and in-demand.

Engineering is at the cutting edge: from robotics, machine learning and artificial intelligence, to mobile phones, medical technology, advanced sports equipment and driverless cars, engineering is shaping the future all around us.

Engineering is for everyone: whatever your background and whatever you love – whether it’s fashion, film, sport, music or technology.

First launched in 2018, This is Engineering is a multi-year campaign led by the Royal Academy of Engineering in partnership with Engineering UK and major engineering organisations. Our aim is to show more young people what engineering really looks like, and how it could be an exciting and rewarding path in the future.

Champions Community 

We want to show young people what it is really like to be an engineer. That's why we're creating the Champions Community: a group of young engineers who lift the lid on what they do in their job, how they got there, and provide tips and advice for young people looking to get into engineering. 

If you are an engineer at the start of your career and have experience creating content, then apply to join our social media masterclass.
