What is Engineering Open House Week?

Previously named Engineering Open House Day, Engineering Open House Week was an opportunity for venues, businesses and organisations across the UK to open their doors to young people, caregivers, schools and teachers.

Offering exclusive behind-the-scenes access, we highlighted the important roles that engineers play in everyday life and demonstrate first-hand the creativity and excitement behind engineering careers.

Engineers bring ideas to life, turn dreams into reality and make solutions to big challenges possible.

They design, invent, fix and improve and they are changing our world for the better.

Whether young people are into sports, music, fashion, flying, healthcare, or improving our climate, there’s a place in engineering and technology for them and we want to show them just how diverse and incredible the world of STEM really is.
