Future of Engineering Debates
In partnership with the Institution of Mechanical Engineers Debating Matters will be staging three events across the UK to engage tomorrows citizens to think about the role of engineering in developing and changing society.
The Institution of Mechanical Engineers aims to improve the world through engineering by inspiring the next generation. By exploring the views of students, as part of a day of themed competitive debate, we hope the students taking part will be part of a wider discussion initiated by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers through its Big Ideas initiative about the future of engineering and education, and technologies and their relationship with society.
Looking at four broad social themes - healthcare, transport and manufacturing, energy and environment, education - bespoke Topic Guides for the event will be produced for the debates.
We will be staging three events in the UK home nations. Links to each country’s programmes are below:
