Engineers 2030 Vision and Principles Consultation

  • Monday May 20, 2024

The Royal Academy of Engineering on behalf of the National Engineering Policy Centre are consulting on the Engineers 2030 Vision and Principles.

As a member of the IHE, we can provide a collective response to this consultation.

Your contributions are important on shaping our stance on this matter.

The National Engineering Policy Centre’s vision and principles consider a future where engineers lead the charge in creating sustainable solutions for our planet’s pressing challenges. By embracing values of equity, inclusion, and sustainability, engineers will continue to transform the way we live and work, including leading the transition to a sustainable and just world.

The six principles are:

  • Resilient and future-facing: we are adaptable and can evolve to respond to a world that changes dramatically over timescales shorter than our career.
  • Socially responsible and inclusive: we know how to work with people and draw upon broad ranging perspectives to create solutions that work for everyone.
  • Trusted agents of public good: we put people and planet at the centre of our work and embody hope for a better future.
  • Holistic in approach: we can find creative solutions that work in the broadest contexts and understand risk in all its forms.
  • Data and digitally fluent: we are equally comfortable working in the physical and digital worlds, and at the interface between them.
  • Commercially and economically literate: we generate knowledge for enterprise and develop broad-ranging skills in the pursuit of sustainable and equitable growth.
