Following a successful pilot campaign in 2012, KMF's Young Engineer of the Year competition has grown from strength to strength.
The project is all about inspiring our next generation, promoting Engineering as a viable career path and promoting Apprenticeships. Overtime the project has become embedded into our local schools and KMF work closely to enrich Design & Technology departments and bring Engineering to life.
