The Royal Academy of Engineering

The Royal Academy of Engineering oversees a number of projects to enhance and enrich the teaching of engineering. This collection contains case studies and details of activities which can be used to encourage pupils to take part in engineering study.

The collection includes:

  • Engineering at the movies: Resources exploring the science, technology, engineering and maths involved in the film industry.
  • Deployable structures: Covering the broad topic of deployable structures, the resources link ideas from mathematics to applications in real world engineering.
  • This is Engineering: A collection of videos showcasing the range of work that Engineers are involved in.
  • Mathematics for Engineering Exemplars: These exemplars give activities which contextualise mathematics in engineering projects for Post-16 students. The activities support the Additional and Specialist Learning (ASL) unit of the Advanced Diploma in Engineering.
  • London Engineering Project Case Studies: These case studies describe 14 projects set up with the aim of engaging and inspiring young people in STEM subjects, with an emphasis on engineering. The projects included activity days for students led by STEM Ambassadors, careers advice for teachers, reports on best practice and events designed to encourage under-represented groups, especially girls.


This series of ten resources produced by The Royal Academy of Engineering look at a range of exemplars to help the teaching and learning of the Advanced Diploma in Construction and Built Environment. Each resource gives a case study and includes introductory materials, background theory, questions and teacher...

The London Engineering Project (LEP) set up projects with London South Bank University to engage young people in STEM subjects. These case studies describe the projects, their backgrounds and activities.

  • The projects are:
  • Engineering Islam
  • Engineering pick 'n' mix
  • Engineering...

Thinking like an engineer: implications for the education system

This report, from the Royal Academy of Engineering, offers fresh insights into the ways engineers think. It suggests ways in which the education system might be redesigned to develop engineers more effectively and makes suggestions as to how the wider public might become engaged with these issues. The report...
