Engineering and Technology are vitally important to the future of the country
Look at the things that are changing the world
today and you will see manufactured products with new technology, engineering
and design. We need to challenge the assumption that careers in industry
and manufacturing are dull. Using your hands and brains to solve problems
is an enormous creative challenge. This understanding should begin at school.
We need to direct our talent from secondary and higher education into the
core task of putting research and technology back into making products that
the world wants.
