For over a decade the Manufacturing Technologies Association’s (MTA) annual Technology, Design and Innovation (TDI) Challenge, has been shining a light on young designers and engineers. The nationwide competition for schools aims to encourage teenagers to recognise the opportunities of a career in engineering and further develop their practical knowledge of modern manufacturing.
Speaking on Friday morning after the Referendum result came through, Manufacturing Technologies Association CEO James Selka said:
“Like the rest of country MTA members will have been engrossed in the referendum over the last few weeks. The MTA took a position, based on the views of our members, of supporting the UK’s remaining within the EU. But now that the decision has been reached, we have to work hard to protect the future of the UK’s manufacturing technologies sector.
