The Royal Academy of Engineering and the Women's Engineering Society are conducting a major survey of engineers working in the UK.
The purpose of the engineering census is to gather information about how engineers across different industries are progressing in their careers in the UK. With a significant skills gap in engineering, it is imperative that qualified and capable engineers are supported sufficiently to allow them to reach their true potential.
The survey hopes to help provide answers to questions such as:
Are engineers reaching their career goals or are they encountering barriers and challenges?
What do they need to enable them to succeed in their career?
Are they making exactly the progress they want?
Do male and female engineers have different experiences?
What support can we provide to enable more engineers to reach their career goals?
The survey will be online throughout the summer and results will be published by the end of the year.
The aim is to get 10,000 engineers taking the survey and to help achieve this. It would be great if you could spread the word within organisations and share the link with your colleague on social media.
If you are an engineer could you please complete the survey and use social media to say that you have done so using the hashtag #EngineeringCensus.
