Tomorrow's Engineers

We are delighted to support and sponsor the EngineeringUK  Tomorrow's Engineers Week initiative which encourages young people to consider engineering as a career choice.  

Tomorrow's Engineers Week runs every year in November and this year will focus on the impact engineers make on the nation’s health and wellbeing. This is of course exactly what clinical and biomedical engineers do so we would love our members to get involved. 

At the heart of the Week (4-8 November 2019)  will be a “Big Assembly” where around 50,000 young people are expected to take part in the same school assembly at the same time. The Big Assembly will feature inspirational engineers on a mission to improve people’s health and the nation’s wellbeing by protecting the environment.  

The Tomorrow’s Engineers Week Big Assembly will take place and streamed live on Wednesday 6th November at 10:30am – and will be available on demand 24 hours later. Provisional Speakers include:

  • Dr Rebecca Shipley, on a mission to create personalised cancer plans for patients
  • Rhordi Lewis, on a mission to provide emergency care for people at sea 
  • Hiba Khan on a mission to provide clean water
  • Dr Payam Barnaghi on a mission to help dementia patients.

Schools (or anyone interested!) can sign up to take part here.
