Engineers: The Supply Side

01 March 1998

In February 1997, the Royal Society, Royal Academy of Engineering and Engineering Council jointly sponsored a seminar to examine the implications of developments in post-16 technology education for the supply of future engineers. The seminar focused, specifically, on the motivation, preparation and formation of engineers. It recognized that while education at any level is not solely about vocationalism, within the broader educational need lies a national economic imperative.
