The Engineering Census is a major survey of engineers working in the UK and is led by the Royal Academy of Engineering and the Women’s Engineering Society.

Where do engineers work and what do they do?

Over 80% of engineers work in businesses with fewer than ten employees. This has increased by a quarter in the last eight years (Engineering Council). The world and nature of work is changing. Help us understand where, how and why you choose to do what you do.

Why are we surveying engineers?

Engineers completing this survey will help WES and the Royal Academy of Engineering gather information about how engineers across different industries are progressing in their careers in the UK. With a significant skills gap in engineering, it is imperative that qualified and capable engineers are supported sufficiently to allow them to reach their true potential.

Are engineers reaching their career goals or are they encountering barriers and challenges? What do they need to enable them to succeed in their career? Are they making exactly the progress they want? Importantly how do their experiences differ? Do male and female engineers have different experiences? What support can we provide to enable more engineers to reach their career goals?

The Census is now closed for further contributions

The Engineering Census is now closed and WES and the Royal Academy of Engineering will be reporting during 2020.
