Engineers Making a Difference

We are thrilled that Natalia Falagán, Lecturer in Food Science and Technology, is one of the amazing Engineers Making a Difference, featured in a new book delivered to all state schools in the UK this March!

Natalia’s research about food sustainability - making the most of the food we have and reducing waste - is part of this inspiring and diverse group of inventors, technicians, scientists and tech entrepreneurs featured in the book. You can find out more at the Engineers Making a Difference site, including downloadable resources and lots of other great links!

We are very proud supporters of the This Is Engineering campaign, turning 5 years old on 24 January 2023!

Since the launch, the campaign has inspired 1.1 million young people aged 13-18 to consider a career in engineering #EngineeringBetterLives

To celebrate National Engineering Day 2022, which is part of the campaign, we were excited to 庆祝十大网赌网址登陆-(No.1排行榜)的技术员的工作 and help raise awareness about these crucial roles, take a look and get inspired!
