Government Thanks MEM for ‘Invaluable Support and Enthusiasm’

The Government would like to thank MEM for ‘all the invaluable support and enthusiasm’ that we offered in order to make the Year of Engineering campaign a success. Thanks to our efforts and support, together with those of the other partners, the campaign delivered more than five million direct experiences of engineering to 7-16 year olds across the UK, well exceeding the initial one million target.

“It is vital we create a lasting and meaningful legacy for the Year of Engineering by continuing to show young people from different backgrounds what they can achieve in engineering. It is testament to the success of the campaign that the Department for Transport is going to be joined by partners across Government. We will work together across the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, the Department for Education and the Department for Transport to build on the success of the campaign through a long-term engineering legacy campaign and through continued collaboration across industry.”

Although the 2018 report by EngineeringUK estimated an annual shortfall of at least 22,000 engineering graduates to fill core engineering roles, the Year of Engineering gave government, partners and engineering institutions a unique opportunity to work together towards a shared goal – to create awareness of the industry and to attract more young people into it.
