This is Engineering Day: 6th November

31 October 2019









We are supporting The Royal Academy of Engineering in their ambition to change the image of the online search results for the word 'engineer'. 

If you would like to join us in supporting this, there are several ways you can get involved: 

Before the day

  • Contribute to our new library of more representative images of engineers and engineering, which will be launched to the public on This is Engineering Day. For more on the images we need, see the brief here
  • Sign our pledge on behalf of your organisation to make more representative images of engineers and engineering more visible to the public

On the day

  • Share a supportive message on social media, or share our Tweets and Instagram posts – you’ll find them by following us on Twitter @ThisIsEng and on Instagram @ThisIsEngineering once the channel launches in October. Don’t forget to use the #ThisIsEngineering hashtag!
  • Showcase our This is Engineering content, or your own inspiring images of engineers and engineering, to the public in whatever way you can – this includes through social media and websites, but for some organisations, it might also mean using advertising space, retail space, newsletters and magazines
  • Join in with our image change challenge. To improve the visibility of more representative images of engineers and engineering, follow our SEO guidelines


More information on all of the above can be found in our This is Engineering Day toolkit. Please spread the word and encourage other engineers to show their support.
