Champions Community

A community of engineering champions lifting the lid on what life as an engineer is really like

Social media masterclass: ‘Lights, Camera, Engineering!’

This is a bespoke course designed to equip a small group of passionate young engineers with all the skills they need to be social media content creators.

The course will be delivered by the Royal Academy of Engineering and Mohammad Taher (@Mo_T_ivate – The Airport Guy) who educates a community of 480,000 people about all things engineering within the aviation industry.  

When will it take place? 

This free 2-day course will take place in London during March (dates TBC, and flexible). Travel and accommodation will be covered for all participants not based in London.  

What will I learn? 

The course will teach you how to create and elevate your profile, principles of a great video, tips for a great profile & bio, how to hack the algorithm, how to understand analytics and so much more.  

At the masterclass you’ll connect with like-minded content creators and during the year, you may get a visit from Mohammad or the Royal Academy of Engineering to help you create engaging content.   

Who’s eligible? 

Are you… 

  • Studying engineering through an apprenticeship, T level, undergraduate degree, graduate degree, or a fully qualified engineer? 
  • Already creating content on social media (doesn’t have to be engineering related), but are really enjoying it and wondering how you can make it better? 
  • Open to creating engineering content tailored toward young people? 
  • Eager to uphold and promote the values of the Royal Academy of Engineering? These include:
  • Progressive leadership – embodying the courage, commitment and ambition to drive positive change for engineering and society.
