Many people hold fixed ideas about the engineering industry, with 50% of teenagers in a recent study stating that engineering is a job for men. This is a worrying perception of a dynamic and growing sector, and challenging preconceived ideas is a motivating factor in many initiatives currently working to raise the profile of engineering.
Engineering, essentially, approaches problems by searching for solutions in creative ways. Many people think of it as a branch of science that demands a research-based, dull existence, but this is not the reality of a career in engineering. Many people within the industry – especially young, female engineers – are determined to change the way their jobs are seen and to raise the profile of engineering as a career option.
The engineering industry is a core part of our business world, and we must be aware of its power to effect change in future generations. The pulse of change is felt more vitally in this industry than in many others, and we must insist that it is built on creativity and equality.
