Inspiring tomorrow's engineers, career path stories
On 30 November 2018, BSRIA announced the launch of its 4th Inspiring Tomorrow's Engineers publication, written by workplace student: Abigail Teekaram. This insightful report looks at the careers of some successful engineers from BSRIA, its membership and the wider industry. This follows last year’s publication which considered the range of engineering careers available and how to choose an appropriate career path and entry route.
The report highlights the career paths of 20 engineering alumni, explaining what inspired them, what influenced their journey, the most enjoyable aspects, notable achievements, and their essential skill set. It was produced as part of BSRIA’s INSPIRE project which works with local schools, national and local politicians and the media to promote STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).
Choosing the right engineering path can be an unnerving process and one that can be best made early, before selecting exam options, college courses or apprenticeships. It is the duty of BSRIA members, industry and government to attract, inspire and engage the next generation of engineers.
BSRIA calls on today’s engineers to inspire those of tomorrow, and to use this publication to promote engineering as a long-term viable career option, and asks that students all over the world think seriously about an exciting and long-lasting career in engineering and science.
