Meet an Engineer: online interviews

A large part of the ‘If you were an Engineer What would you do?’ Leaders Award Competition is interviewing engineers and enabling pupils to ask the questions that matter to them. These interviews provide an opportunity for engineers to share how they use creative problem solving in their work and inspire the pupils to come up with their own engineering ideas.  

You can find videos of our previous engineer interviews on our YouTube channel 

How do we get involved in the online Interviews?

All interviews are available to those who are taking part in this years competition.
