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.

And please help us by passing the link onto your friends and colleagues by email and social media.

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?

Help spread the word

Invite others to take the Engineering Census

Our ambition is to achieve a high response rate among engineers from across all roles and sectors in the UK. We need your help to do this. Please take the census and share the link among your friends, and current and former colleagues.

Please share this survey with your colleagues and spread the word on social media.

The Engineering Census will be live until 30 November 2019 and the results published in early 2020.
