The Engineer

Way back in 1856 the founders of The Engineer laid out a vision to document and report on the astonishing innovations and breakthroughs of the industrial revolution.

More than 160 years later – although the technological landscape would be unrecognisable to our Victorian predecessors - the publication remains true to this vision.

Via its website and monthly print magazine - and through a combination of news, in-depth reports and hard-hitting opinion – the publication gives engineers across all sectors early warning on the disruptive technologies, trends and products that will impact their roles; keeps them informed of developments in other areas of engineering and champions all that is great about UK engineering and manufacturing.

Today, at a time of accelerating technological change, when the role of the engineer is broader than ever before and cross sector collaboration is the key to maintaining a competitive edge, The Engineer has never been more relevant.
