Inspiring the next generation

Advice and resources from our professionals to inspire young people into rewarding careers.

Atkins, operating under AtkinsRéalis, is a leading global consultancy with over 80 years of design, engineering and project management expertise.

We love our jobs and are passionate about passing on our enthusiasm to young people. And, with a shortage of professionals in our industry, its vital students know just how much they can get out of careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

After all, our work transforms the world, improving people's lives and that leads to a really rewarding career.

With Atkins, you'll be in great company.


STEM education prepares future generations for career success, extending beyond what they need to excel in technical fields. It teaches students more than science and mathematics concepts.

21st-century skills include technology, literacy, productivity, social skills, communication, flexibility, and initiative. Other skills gained through STEM education include problem-solving, critical thinking, creativity, curiosity, decision-making, leadership, entrepreneurship and acceptance of failure. These will prepare students for success and innovation, regardless of their chosen career path.
