The need to engage and inspire the next generation to consider a career in engineering is one of the profession's most talked about challenges. 

But what does an effective STEM engagement strategy actually look like? How do we measure its effectiveness? And with a plethora of initiatives underway of varying size and scale, how do we ensure that the profession is using every tool at its disposal to shore up the supply of future engineering talent? 

As the Year of Engineering draws to a close, This is Engineering Engagement will bring together stakeholders from a range of leading engineering employers, industry associations and STEM engagement initiatives in an effort to answer these critical questions. 

Through a series of presentations, panel sessions and workshops, this event will examine the current engineering engagement landscape, probe the strengths and weaknesses of a range of engagement strategies, identify common challenges, drive collaboration, share best practice and chart a course for a more joined-up approach to STEM engagement. 

This is Engineering Engagement is jointly organised by the Royal Academy of Engineering, I'm an Engineer and the Engineer Magazine.
