Engineering's upward spiral

Written by: Tim Fryer | Published:

These are tantalising times at Eureka! The announcement of this year's British Engineering Excellence Awards (BEEAs) winners is only a few weeks away. Another two weeks after that and the doors will be opening on the Engineering Design Show (EDS). These are the two highlights in the Eureka calendar as they give us an opportunity to showcase the Best of British.

This is not down to any jingoistic, blind patriotism, but instead a conviction that engineering is fundamental to the future health of British society. A society that creates and makes – and encourages its children to do the same – has to be healthier than one that just consumes. The BEEAs highlight the cream of the crop – engineers, projects and products that ooze innovation and expertise. EDS provides a meeting place for the whole engineering industry – a place to share, learn, inspire and be inspired.

Like Eureka itself, we hope these events add strength to the British engineering sector. Communicating achievement results in an upward spiral of success, not only in terms of the feel good factor, but more significantly in the expertise and opportunity. At the time of reading, if you read this when first published, there may still be time to get tickets to the BEEAs Gala Dinner ( Otherwise you will just have to wait until the November issue to find out the details of who won what. But there is still time to register for EDS (, including places at conference and workshop sessions. Everyone is part of engineering’s upward spiral and, it could be argued, the bigger part that everyone plays, the more successful that spiral will be.
