With applications to study civil engineering at university in worrying decline, many in the profession are concerned that it has simply lost its appeal to young people.

Educational charity Input will be at Civils to prove different. Input has been working with children in over 20 schools on practical design and construction projects on a grand scale. Models of the capital's big wheel, the London Eye, dwarf many of the young engineers involved in building them. The charity and some of those who have been enthused by their hands on engineering experience will be on Stand 12 C167 to explain its innovative approach to education.
