Born to Engineer

In response to the shortage of trained engineers, the ERA Foundation launched Born to Engineer, a campaign to inspire young people to become the engineers of the future. At the heart of the campaign is a series of high quality short films, each featuring an engineer with an inspiring story. The Born to Engineer website aims to signpost users to current initiatives that help to educate teachers and parents about engineering careers and inspire more young people to choose engineering as a profession.
