The contribution of engineering and engineers to the UK economy.
Engineering turnover was £1.1 trillion in the year ending March 2012, a rise of 3.5%. Engineering now accounts for 24.5% of the turnover of all enterprises in the UK, up from 23.9% in 2011.
The four-year trend in turnover was also positive, increasing by 2.2%
In the Higher Education sector, applicant numbers for all subjects have risen by 37.2% over ten years, although there was an overall decline of 6.6% last year and a decline in applicant numbers for each STEM subject area.
Physical sciences showed the least decline, down by 1.9% in 2011/12. Engineering was down 2.7%, despite a ten-year increase of 41.7%. Females made up 13.0% of all applicants to engineering in 2011/12, a slight improvement on 2002/03 when the comparable figure was 11.2%
In 2013, there were nearly 2.5 million students (2,496,625) in UK Higher Education. This is a remarkable increase in provision from the early 1970s, when there were just over 600,000 students. In 2011/12, nearly a quarter (23.8%) of all students were studying for a STEM qualification. Male students were twice as likely as females to be studying for a STEM qualification (34.3% against 15.7%), although females outnumbered their male counterparts (1,406,940 to 1,089,685). Biological sciences was the only STEM subject where female students outnumbered males.
Overall, 162,015 students were studying for a degree in engineering and technology in 2011/12. Of these, 136,525 were male and 25,490 were female. Most of the students were studying at an undergraduate level, with 89,915 studying full-time and 13,035 studying part time. At postgraduate level, full-time study was again prevalent, with 29,685 full-time students against 12,300 part-time.

More students than ever have been accepted on to science, technology, engineering courses, according to new figures published by the Higher Education Funding Council (Hefce).
In 2013-14, 98,000 students were accepted on to Stem undergraduate courses, the highest level ever recorded. This is an 8% rise on last academic year, and an 18% rise since 2002-03.
Acceptances on to engineering and technology courses “bounced back” by 6% after a decline, returning to the peak levels of 2010-11. Acceptances to computer science courses increased by 12% compared with the previous year, and are now at their highest point since 2003-04.
The UK has been instrumental in the development of computing and continues to deliver ground-breaking innovations in the 21st century. UK universities are also at the forefront of computer science, with many departments conducting research for the world’s top companies – developing software to save a persons life, creating a whole new world through a keyboard and mouse, or programming a robot to complete a task – the opportunities are endless, and at a UK university you are guaranteed excellent teaching at schools which consistently rank in the top 100 universities in the world.
