Why engineering?

Engineering has an essential role to play in the development of, and provision of access to, new medical interventions, safe drinking water and sanitation facilities, sustainable energy generation technologies and other public services.

Engineering is a key enabler of wealth creation, both underpinning the innovation process and being necessary for building the infrastructure (physical and virtual) required for enterprises, supply chains and markets to function.

Engineering increases the resilience of communities, for example by providing practical tools to adapt to rapid climate change, one of the greatest threats to fragile environments and economic growth worldwide.
