Inspiring Future Engineers

Why we need your help

Support future engineers today and we'll match your donation, pound for pound. So if you donate £50 - we'll donate £50 too.

Your contribution has the potential to make a real difference towards helping to shape the future of engineering. All donations directly support our educational programmes and scholarships and bursaries.

It's no secret that there is a skills gap in engineering, and we're committed to addressing it.

If you're passionate about engineering and want to help us to inspire and support the next generation of talent, you can help make a real difference by contributing towards one of our fantastic programmes:

STEM education
We run the UK & Ireland FIRST® LEGO® League and our own Faraday Challenge scheme, both working to generate excitement and raise awareness of STEM subjects among young people, with particular focus on engineering. We reach thousands of children each year!

Scholarships and bursaries
For those already on the path towards a career in engineering, it’s important to recognise their talent and help them to overcome barriers to entry into the profession. We're proud to support hundreds of students annually through our Engineering Horizons Bursaries and Diamond Jubilee Scholarships, and the schemes continue to grow year on year.

Our Board of Trustees have released £1 million to match any new donations given to support our STEM education schemes and scholarships and bursaries, in celebration of our upcoming 150 year anniversary. Donations can be made any time between 1 July 2018 and 31 December 2021 to be eligible for match-funding.
Help us to engineer a better future by donating toy

We're matching all new donations from 1 July 2018 to 31 December 2021. Help us to engineer a better future by donating today.

The Institution of Engineering and Technology is registered as a Charity in England & Wales (no 211014) and Scotland (no SC038698).

With so many competing interests young people need as much encouragement as possible to become engineers and meet the future needs of society.
