Welcome to the All-Party Parliamentary Engineering Group
Professor the Lord Broers, Group Co-Chair
“The All Party Parliamentary Engineering Group’ or ‘APPEG’ intends to be an innovative parliamentary group enabling contact and involvement with parliamentarians and the engineering profession but with a special emphasis on young engineers.”
Membership of the group comprises of officers from the Lords and Commons.
For our events, we also invite figures from business, education and other organisations and institutions involved in engineering, with a particular emphasis on young engineers.
Three formal events at Westminster take place every year (see events) and additional activities may be inserted into the parliamentary programme, in conjunction with associate members of the Group.
The group is supported by our sponsors.
“The students are loving these opportunities and are so excited when they are asked to be involved in these session. Most importantly it develops and deepens their knowledge in the world of Engineering and science that inspires them to progress in this area.
A young lady we took to the last session at the House of commons scored all 9’s in her science. She is now doing A levels in science and has been lined up for engineering opportunities at Toyota. Remarkable.
Many thanks once again for the opportunity” – Neil Wilkinson, Executive Headteacher, The Bemrose School
“I want to thank you very much for the outstanding online event “Covid and Engineering”. It was extremely informative and inspirational. Both our staff and students enjoyed it very much” – Peter Hughes, Lecturer – Maths and Physics, Westminster Kingsway College
“An excellent meeting and discussions. Thank you!” – Rod Edwards, Portsmouth College, UTC Portsmouth
“Thanks very much for an excellent meeting” – Carol Monaghan MP, Glasgow North West
“Excellent presentations. Thanks.” – Hilary Benn MP
“Excellent meeting – great presentations, thanks Paul and Rob – and some very good questions. A fascinating and important topic – a challenging, interesting and wonderful future for engineers!” – Lord Mair
‘The discussion proved to be intriguing and valuable, giving me many insights into the role of industry, academia, and the multidisciplinary approach required to see change.’ – Nadia Howarth Year 13 UTC Portsmouth
‘Very interesting to hear the opinions of big companies on the changes being planned for Aviation. I’m excited about getting involved in this industry in the future.’ – Nathan Williams Year 12 UTC Portsmouth
‘The APPG engineering debate gave me an excellent insight into the future of low carbon aviation. I enjoyed how the debate involved experienced engineers from big companies. They had extensive knowledge of the aviation industry and provided very good advice. This has really reinforced my intentions of pursuing a career in engineering in the future.’ - Michael Rajzer (1st Year A Level Student), Portsmouth College
‘The debate was very interesting as it provided me with a better understanding behind what engineers are currently doing in the field of low carbon aviation, and what the future holds for the industry. The fact that experienced engineers and industry professionals were speaking made it all the more exciting as it makes the possibilities a reality. The experience really confirmed my desire to study Engineering at university and beyond.’ - Charlie Collis (1st Year A Level Student), Portsmouth College
