Year of Engineering 2018

We are delighted to be part of the Year of Engineering 2018.

YoE is a government backed programme of events spanning across the UK, encouraging people of all ages (but especially younger people) to engage with science, technology, engineering and maths – and consider working in fields using these topics.

As an event which celebrates and connects engineers, we are proud to support this initiative and are pleased to encourage people from all backgrounds to consider engineering, in all forms, as a potential career.

There is no single industry which does not need engineers, and the ecosystem of technologies used in autonomous vehicles is as diverse as it is exciting, with ideas and applications of STEM skills included in mechanical, electrical, digital and even civil engineering. Outside our regular topic of autonomous road vehicles, these technologies are used in the air, under water, even in space – as well as in logistics, industrial manufacturing processes in factories, and agriculture.

The engineers we see at our events come from and go towards many different industries and we are keen to fly the flag on their behalf and tell everyone that being an engineer can take you anywhere.
