Who’s the most famous engineer you know?

Friday, January 6, 2012

Unfortunately it’s probably not going to be a woman which is a problem for our economy as we miss out on the talents of half the population. Heeley MP Meg Munn is active in trying to change this state of affairs and wants Sheffield and South Yorkshire to become the first choice for young women working in these fields.

She recently arranged to meet Gary Drabble who is the co-ordinator for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths in Sheffield and Rotherham to discuss the issue. His job involves helping local young people, colleges, universities, businesses and councils to work together to support jobs and careers in the science, technology, engineering and maths fields.

Meg commented:

“It’s great to see that so much work is being done to support young people fulfil their ambitions for a career in these areas. However, I was sad to learn that when many young people are asked ‘who is the most famous engineer you’ve heard of’ most say ‘Kevin from Coronation Street’.

“We need to do more to show the options that are available to young people. I’ll be working with Gary to see how we can make these careers more attractive to young women and girls.”
