Engineering is the future

Donor: Amberg Engineering

Interview with Antonia Cornaro, Expert Room Underground

"Engineering is the future. What is important: more education about training and the profession while young people are still at school. 

Answers from Antonia Cornaro about Engineers' Day.

When and in what context did you first hear about Engineers' Day?
Two years ago.

Your company is now participating in Engineers' Day for the second time as a donor. Why are you involved in this event?
To promote young potentials, to inspire young engineers for the engineering profession, to position the importance of the engineering profession in general.

What goal or goals would you highlight as the most important priority in terms of your involvement in Engineers' Day or in everyday life?
World Engineering Day: highlighting engineering achievements in the context of Unesco's 17 sustainability themes. 

Why do you think engineers and their achievements are under-appreciated in everyday life and what can engineers do about it?
In general, engineers sell themselves poorly, or at least not well. They are too project- or detail-oriented and think they don't need to advertise and market themselves and their services.

If you had one wish to influence the promotion of young talent even more, who would it be and what would it be?
"Engineering is the future. More education about the training and the profession already during the school years of the young people. 

Do you have another wish in connection with Engineers' Day?
That the general public becomes aware of the event / the initiative behind it and that the image of engineers* improves as a result.
