Royal Academy of Engineering


The Royal Academy of Engineering brings together the most successful and talented engineers from across the engineering sectors for a shared purpose: to advance and promote excellence in engineering.

It provide analysis and policy support to promote the UK’s role as a great place to do business. The Academy takes a lead on engineering education and we invest in the UK’s world-class research base to underpin innovation. What’s more, the organisation works to improve public awareness and understanding of engineering.

The Academy has a global outlook, and uses its international partnerships to ensure that the UK benefits from international networks, expertise and investment. As part of its work, the Royal Academy of Engineering has established the Higher Education Partnership Programme, which aims to ensure that the higher education system in sub-Saharan Africa produces engineers with the skills and knowledge required to meet industry needs and tackle local challenges. The Academy also runs the Africa Prize, an initiative that encourages ambitious and talented sub-Saharan African engineers from all disciplines to apply their skills to develop scalable solutions to local challenges.
