A day in the life of an engineer: Win the 2022 Water Engineering Award!

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

It is no coincidence that when it comes to filling permanent vacancies, UK employers have consistently voted engineering and technical in the top three most challenging functions.

The Eastern Area of the Institute of Water want to change that perception, get people to proudly embrace the engineering in their work and start that discussion on what it means to be an engineer.

We want to hear your experience of what it is like to be an engineer, in any format, including but not limited to a video, a photo or a series of photos or a poster. What is your day like in the life of an engineer?

The intended audience is of your choice so it can be for primary school ages, young water professionals, peers etc. Just make sure you include your intended audience in your application.

Can I Enter?
•            Submit an entry showing us what a day in the life of an engineer looks like for you
•            Am I an Engineer? Engineering is the branch of science and technology concerned with the design, building, and use of engines, machines, and structures. If you consider yourself an engineer (whether that’s as a technician, an apprentice or in any branch of science), then that is good enough for us!
