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.
