The National Railway Museum is supporting the Year of Engineering—a government campaign which celebrates the world and wonder of engineering.
Throughout the year, we’ll be hosting a range of fantastic events and activities. We’re focusing on unusual fields, unexpected routes and the incredible stories of engineers from under-represented groups—all to show that engineering can be a career for anyone.
We’re aiming to encourage the next generation of innovators and problem-solvers to join exciting, rewarding and creative industries to help shape the future of the world we live in.
Keep checking this page to see what’s on offer, and discover what else you can do at the Year of Engineering website.
