Royal Academy of Engineering

The Royal Academy of Engineering (RAEng) is one of four UK national academies, and brings together the most successful and talented engineers for a shared purpose: to advance and promote excellence in engineering. It provides expert advice and policy support to Government; takes a lead on engineering education and invests in the UK’s world class research base to underpin innovation and growth. The Academy receives funding from a variety of sources including Government.

The Engineering Council works closely with the Royal Academy, having co-authored a Statement of Ethical Principles for professional engineers and technicians. The Academy also leads the Engineering the Future alliance of engineering organisations, publishing skills and policy analysis such as The Universe of Engineering (2014).

Prizes and medals

The celebration of engineering excellence is at the heart of the Royal Academy of Engineering. The UK continues to provide an abundance of engineers whose achievements in the academic and professional practice of engineering have a huge impact on society. The RAEng awards celebrate the significant contribution of engineering to the nation’s wealth, health and wellbeing and recognise engineers at all stages of their careers. Awards given by the Academy seek to recognise and reward the very best of engineering talent from across the UK, notably via the MacRobert Award and globally through the Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering.
