THIS IS ENGINEERING
We are proud to be supporting "This is Engineering" - a nationwide campaign to inspire young people in engineering.
This year are sponsoring the "This is Engineering" campaign, which aims to bring engineering to life for young people, giving them more of an opportunity to follow a career path that is rewarding, impactful, well-paid and high in demand.
Led by the Royal Academy of Engineering, “This is Engineering” is a multi-year campaign that uses the power of real-life stories and applications to show more young people what engineering really looks like and how it could be a viable career for them in the future.
As the UK’s top engineering company in the Sunday Times 25 Best Big Companies To Work For 2019, we are passionate about our industry and want to support a continued pipeline of talent in the UK. “This is Engineering” has already made a measurable difference to encouraging more young people and we are proud to be supporting such an initiative which is backed by a number of leading engineering organisations all sharing the same goal of inspiring young people.
MBDA as a business has a vast variety of roles for engineers, working at the cutting edge of the Defence industry and our entry routes allow for young people to choose the path that suits them, whether it be a sponsored apprenticeship or graduate programme. We're proud to say our employees defy the stereotypes of engineers through their outreach and school events, making “This is Engineering” an initiative that we are passionate about and we want to continue to see it gaining so much traction.
"This is Engineering" is a fantastic and very professional campaign focused on keeping our pool of engineering talent amongst the best in the world. The key to its success is changing the mind-set of young people and getting them interested in engineering by demonstrating that they offer exciting and varied careers for people like them. As a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering, I have seen this project develop, come to fruition and expand into a campaign that I am very proud to support personally and professionally. MBDA's support as a funder will help them to grow the campaign in 2019." – Chris Allam, Executive Group Director Engineering & Managing Director MBDA UK
