Subscribe to Campaigning blog feeds


EEF is committed to inspiring the next generation of engineers that our industry need. As an official partner of the Year of Engineering, a cross-government campaign to raise the profile of the profession, I sat down with Dame Judith Hackitt to discuss her thoughts on the Year of Engineering, why she decided to become an engineer and what she’ll be doing to support the campaign.


Pursuing a career as an Engineer



...Inspiring young people



...Year of Engineering campaign


The message that stuck with me is that “…The biggest problems in the world need engineers to get to the right answer”. Many thanks to Dame Judith Hackitt for taking the time to share her thoughts.
