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.

Our aim is to show more young people what engineering really looks like, and how it could be an exciting and rewarding path for them in the future.

If you have a question or comment, whether you’re a student, parent, teacher or engineer, please get in touch.

If you are a parent or teacher looking for advice and resources for your children or students, take a look at the Neon website, Royal Academy of Engineering resources, or the Year of Engineering website for events near you. You can also follow us on Twitter at @ThisIsEng or on Instagram at @ThisIsEngineering.

This is Engineering is led by the Royal Academy of Engineering, in collaboration with EngineeringUK, and with the generous support of our partners.
