BSRIA promotes engineering through career path stories

BSRIA has launched its fourth Inspiring Tomorrow's Engineers publication, written by workplace student Abigail Teekaram and taking a look at the careers of some successful engineers at BSRIA, among its membership and in the industry.

The report follows last year’s publication which considered the range of engineering careers within the construction industry and how to choose the appropriate career path and entry route suitable for individual interests and skills. 

Ms Teekaram’s report highlights the career paths of 20 engineering alumni, asking them to summarise their respective careers, what inspired them into their roles, what influenced their journey, the most enjoyable aspects, notable achievements, what they believe is the essential skillset, and how they found out that the job existed in the first instance.

The work was carried out as part of BSRIA’s INSPIRE project which works with local schools, national and local politicians and the media to promote science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) and change perceptions.

Choosing the right engineering path can be an “unnerving process” and one that must be made early on before selecting exam options, college courses or apprenticeships. The publication showcases the career trajectory of some industry leading lights and showcases specifics on the myriad of careers in engineering.

BSRIA has called on today’s engineers to inspire the engineers of tomorrow and use this publication to promote engineering as a viable long-term career option.
