Year of Engineering

15 January 2018

Engineering underpins major scientific feats – such as the discovery of gravitational waves – and international centres for scientific research like CERN. And every day, engineers drive technological advances that are visible in all areas of society.

2018 is the Year of Engineering, and organisations around the UK are working together to highlight this extraordinary field.

Together with other research councils, STFC is celebrating the Year of Engineering with lots of inspiring content. On this page, you can watch interviews with STFC engineers, explore our infographic on the many engineering careers, and see some of the people tackling modern engineering challenges.

So #takeacloserlook at engineering. You might be surprised at what you find.
