Only 9% of UK engineers are women and only 6% are black or minority ethnic, but EngineeringUK estimates that the profession is short of up to 20,000 engineers a year. Engineering pays well and there is no shortage of exciting events going on around the country to promote science, technology, engineering and maths, so why aren’t more young people taking up engineering as a career?

Join our panel chaired by Sarah Sands, Editor of BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme, during Tomorrow’s Engineers Week 2017, to debate the future of engineering.
