Why consider a career in engineering and manufacturing – ten good reasons


In this talk, Peter looks at the contribution that engineering makes to modern society, in particular how engineering affects everything that we do. Engineers turn ideas and technology into something that we can manufacture in quantity and all use. From the earliest of times, engineering has been central to human existence but in the modern world, we face particular challenges: climate change, material use and healthcare, for example. A career in engineering and manufacturing gives creative people the opportunity to make their mark, see the impact of their work, and make a real difference to society.
