E-forum opens for young engineers

10 Nov 2008

Young engineers can post comments on the state of engineering in the UK on a new e-forum. These views will inform the House of Commons Innovation, Universities, Science and Skills Committee as part of an in-depth inquiry which it will report on to Government.

Phil Willis, Chairman of the Committee, said, ‘We want to hear what young people think about engineering...This is your chance to influence our recommendations on how Government policy might best serve the engineering sector and we hope that as many prospective engineers and young engineers as possible will participate.’

The e-forum is particularly interested in finding out whether young people feel engineering is a good career choice, why they decided to pursue a career in the sector and whether their education adequately prepared them for it, and how engineering in the UK could be improved. The forum will close on 9 December.
