Year of Engineering - Advent Calendar
2018 saw the launch of the Year of Engineering, a year-long government led (Department of Transport) campaign to celebrate UK engineering and increase awareness and understand what engineers do.
Throughout the year EPSRC has supported the campaign through a range of communication activities. Every day, from now until Christmas, help us celebrate engineering by clicking on the doors to find out how engineering impacts on our everyday lives.
