The ninth Tomorrow’s Engineers Week (#TEWeek21) took place from 8 to 12 November 2021.

This year’s celebration coincided with the COP26 Climate Summit in Glasgow and Tomorrow’s Engineers Week  focussed on demonstrating how engineering careers can contribute to tackling climate change and achieving net zero.

The packed calendar saw engineering institutions, employers and schools come together to deliver inspiring activities giving young people the opportunity to discuss solutions to the climate crisis.

The Week featured the first ever Tomorrow's Engineers Week Schools COP where students around the UK came together to discuss the vital importance of achieving net zero.

The event also explored how the engineers behind technological and scientific breakthroughs will be at the heart of the world’s response to climate change in the coming years.
