A continuing skills shortage in UK engineering (according to Engineering UK) suggests there's a shortfall of at least 20,000 engineering graduates each year.
It's not all doom and loom though! Engineering and technology degrees are up 9% and England has seen the highest number of engineering related apprenticeship starts for ten years.
But there continues to be a real concern in attracting more young people into engineering.
There's never been a better time for young people to consider engineering with huge demand for engineering graduates and apprentices.
We want want people to think differently about engineering and see that it is all around us from our smart phones and tablets to our heating and lighting to our clothes and toiletries. Engineers have played a huge part in all of these and much, much more.
