Welcome to the Scottish Engineering Hall of Fame
The Scottish Engineering Hall of Fame celebrates and honours those engineers from, or closely associated with, Scotland who have achieved, or deserve to achieve, greatness. The genius and skills of many great Scots have contributed hugely to the wellbeing of the world today, in all fields of engineering. This site will give you some insights into these outstanding individuals.
Message from Fergus Ewing MSP
"Scotland has a long and proud tradition of science and engineering excellence. I am pleased to offer my personal support in your efforts to inspire the next generation of young people to consider engineering as a credible and valuable career choice. While it is important to celebrate the great achievements made by Scottish engineers in the past, it is also vital that the contribution of those working today at the forefront of engineering is also recognised.
Improving science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) education, in line with Curriculum for Excellence, is a key priority for the Scottish Government. Through changes in learning, teaching and leadership in schools, the curriculum and other changes now being put in place will provide new and creative opportunities to make STEM education more rewarding, stimulating and attractive for all young people."

Primary Engineer Hall of Fame Quiz
We are delighted that the Primary Engineer programme is using the Scottish Engineering Hall of Fame as a core resource for its Scottish Engineering Primary Special Award. A quiz based on the inaugural seven inductees is used as a downloadable teaching resource ('Scottish Award Hall of Fame powerpoint') to encourage primary school pupils to research further into engineering and then draw or write about "What I would do if I was an engineer in Scotland?"
This is part of the Leaders Award for STEM initiative. Closing date for schools for the latest competition is 20th November 2013.
