Shaping the engineering landscape of tomorrow – 2012

Previous research and insight conducted by Roevin has shown that candidates looking for engineering jobs are increasingly lacking the skills needed to work in the sector. As a result we predict that there will be a significant skills shortage by 2014.

We therefore need to analyse these issues to come up with workable solutions. Roevin has conducted this round of research to help employers understand what attracts engineers to the profession and what skills will be needed for the future to help stimulate growth in the UK with viable long term projects.

This report:

  • Analyses the skill sets likely to be required in engineers of the future
  • Looks at re-defining the term ‘engineering’
  • Considers the impact of a highly mobile engineering workforce
  • Reviews the transferability of skills from other industries
  • Investigates how employers can attract more people to work in engineering

The research is further underpinned by the ‘EngineeringUK Report 2012 – the state of engineering, EngineeringUK, December 2011’ which gives industry insight together with findings from “Unlocking Britain’s Potential”, research conducted by the Adecco Group (Roevin’s parent company).
