The Year of Engineering is a government campaign which celebrates the world and wonder of engineering. From spaceships to ice skates, the bubbles in chocolate bars to lifesaving cancer treatment, engineering touches every part of our lives.

Working in engineering is exciting, rewarding and creative. We need the next generation of innovators and problem solvers to join the industry and help shape the future of the world we live in.

There are lots of different routes into a career in engineering, including a university qualification or an apprenticeship. You can take a closer look at what life in engineering is like in 2018 by visiting a wide range of organisations, meeting engineers in school or arranging work experience.

Nine Elms is a principal partner of the Year of Engineering 2018. With so many engineering feats taking place in the area, Nine Elms will be telling their stories in an upcoming feature and hosting a specific #YoE programme – watch this space for details.
