From access to clean water and electricity, to technologies and transport that help us keep in touch with other people, engineers have made a difference to almost every aspect of our lives.
This is Engineering will unveil new materials and activities on 4 November 2020 – return in November for the big announcement.

Last year, the Academy launched a public image library to counter negatively stereotyped imagery. The image library is free and provides diverse imagery to be used online and in publications to show the multiple sides and faces to engineering.
