Design and manufacturing
In 2009, business leaders were asked to forecast what the
fastest growing industries in the UK would be.
Their top two answers were:
Cleantech – products or services
that improve performance
and efficiency whilst reducing
costs, energy or pollution.
Renewables – renewable forms
of energy, such as wind, solar or
tidal, to help us avoid future
energy shortages.
Both of these industries rely heavily on the
knowledge and skills of engineers.
