Today, 4 March, marks World Engineering Day 2022, which highlights engineers’ achievements around the world and aims to improve the public understanding of the importance of engineering and technology.

At the REME Museum, we wanted to highlight the work and careers of the Corps of the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers.

"The role of the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (REME) is to maintain, repair and manufacture equipment to keep battle winning aircraft, tanks and weapons in fighting order. The REME exists to 'keep the punch in the Army's fist'."

Throughout the day we are taking to our social media channels (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) to increase awareness of the crucial role of REME in the British Armed Forces. Our posts will include:

  • Discussions like "What is engineering?" and "Why is engineering important?"
  • Links to REME's various careers, giving a sense of the opportunities available in the Corps
  • Fun resources for the young engineers out there
  • Parts of our historic collection that highlight the role and ingenuity of engineering

We hope you enjoy the content. Please follow us, give the posts a like and let us know what you think by tagging us @reme_museum and using the hashtag #rememuseum 

If you miss or can't find any of our social media posts, never fear, we'll be adding them all to the tweet collection below.

Thanks for celebrating World Engineering Day with us!
