Engineering the future


Engineering the future is an alliance of professional engineering organisations with a combined membership of 450,000 engineers. Our vision is of a thriving UK economy, based on innovative high- value businesses and industries that build on our national strengths, address the grand challenges of the 21st century and support a thriving economy.

Engineering the future works to promote understanding of the contribution of engineering to the economy and society as a whole, and to increase the role of engineering in the development and delivery of national policy. We work with Government and Parliament to inform and shape key areas of policy, such as energy, national infrastructure and biomedical engineering. We promote engineering to the public, with whom we engage in dialogue and debate on the issues that matter. We also work with business and industry to help create the right climate for innovation in the UK.

The leadership of Engineering the future is drawn from the following organisations:

  • The Engineering Council
  • EngineeringUK
  • The Institution of Civil Engineers
  • The Institution of Chemical Engineers
  • The Institution of Engineering and Technology
  • The Institution of Mechanical Engineers
  • The Institute of Physics
  • The Royal Academy of Engineering
