Study engineering

Discover endless creative possibilities.

Engineering is a career for problem solvers. It’s a wide and diverse field that touches every part of human life. The vehicles we drive, the electronic devices we use, the buildings we work in and the medicines we take are all products of engineering.

This means anyone with interests in virtually any area can be attracted to and enjoy engineering and it’s never too early to introduce engineering to young people. Young children can develop an interest in and appreciation for engineering with toys such as Lego, Meccano or even Play Doh.

We’ve put together some resources for school-age students and teachers to help you foster interest in budding engineers of any age.
