We need to shout about engineering! Indeed: it is the duty of BSRIA members, industry and government to attract, inspire and engage the next generation of engineers. Building services changes lives, saves the planet and brings communities together.
This exceptional report is a “must read” and should be in the in-box (soft copy) and on the desk (hard copy) of all school and college students contemplating their respective next steps and careers.
BSRIA calls on today’s engineers to inspire the engineers of tomorrow. And to use this publication to promote engineering as a long term viable career option.
History has shown that those who pursue engineering and science arguably make the biggest impact to the world: incredible minds provide us with incredible ideas we once might have thought of as unbelievable but are now entrenched in our society.
The BSRIA INSPIRE project is working with local schools, national and local politicians and the media to promote STEM and change its perceptions.
It raises the question of why are STEM subjects important? What does engineering mean for you? Why does technology matter? There is one answer to those three questions which is quite simply “everything”.
To this end BSRIA asks that students all over the world think seriously about an exciting and long-lasting career in engineering and science!
In the summer of 2018, as part of the BSRIA INSPIRE programme, BSRIA continued its tradition of building and sharing knowledge by recruiting a 19-year old summer intern (Abigail) to give her experience in the professional workplace and undertake this report.
