Funder: Royal Academy of Engineering
I’m an Engineer is proud to be funded through an Ingenious grant from the Royal Academy of Engineering.
The Royal Academy of Engineering is the UK’s national academy for engineering. It aims to advance and promote excellence in engineering through bringing together the most successful and talented engineers from across all engineering sectors.
In addition to providing analysis and policy support and investing in innovation through the UK’s world class research base, the academy works to improve public awareness and understanding of engineering. It also works to promote engineering education.
The STFC are sponsoring the Measurement Zone in I’m an Engineer in March 2012. They have previously sponsored sponsored 2 zones in I’m a Scientist, and will also be sponsoring an Electromagnetic Zone in I’m a Scientist in March 2012.
The STFC, one of the seven Research Councils, keeps the UK at the forefront of international science and engineering technology and tackles some of the most significant challenges facing society such as meeting our future energy needs, monitoring and understanding climate change, and global security.
The STFC draws on many aspects of engineering, working with the academic and industrial communities to share its expertise in materials engineering, space and ground-based astronomy technologies, laser science, microelectronics, wafer scale manufacturing, particle and nuclear physics, alternative energy production, radio communications and radar.
