Bristol has been at the heart of the engineering world for over
200 years, contributing heavily to the development of
shipbuilding, railways, aviation, physics and more. From the SS
Great Britain to Concorde, Bristol has produced some of the
most iconic feats of engineering of the modern age. With new,
high-profile engineering projects continually coming out of the
Bristol area, its legacy of technological progression looks set to
stretch into the future. But it is individual engineers themselves
who will carry and develop this legacy. Big ideas start small, and
it is possible for today’s inspired engineer to become tomorrow’s
