Engineering is a career that sadly so many people know so little about. In setting up the Triumph Design Awards, my aim is to demonstrate that Engineering is an exciting and rewarding career which gives endless opportunities to solve the world’s great problems and make life better for everyone. By showcasing our nation’s most innovative young Engineers, their schools, and their projects at a national level I aspire to challenge some of the common misconceptions and show the world what Engineering is really all about. If we are to meet the needs and demands of an ever more advanced society, everyone needs to step up and contribute. Teachers, parents, students and businesses. This is me doing my bit.
