About This is Engineering… As You’ve Never Seen It Before

Engineering is everywhere but we often don’t notice it: the aeroplanes flying overhead, the video games that entertain us and the inside of your fridge are just some of the engineering innovations that make life easier and more fun every day. But engineers are also problem-solvers and solution-finders, tackling the world’s biggest challenges and shaping the future.

This is Engineering… As You’ve Never Seen It Before is an exhibition by the Museum of Engineering Innovation and photographer Ted Humble-Smith which takes you on a fascinating journey through some of the UK's greatest engineering innovations. These images are an artist's interpretation of the thought process behind 10 world-leading breakthroughs, all of which are winners of the Royal Academy of Engineering MacRobert Award.

Learn more about the MacRobert Award and how Ted created the pictures in our behind the scenes feature.
