About us

As Britain's national academy for engineering, The Royal Academy of Engineering brings together the country's most eminent engineers from all disciplines to promote excellence in the science, art and practice of engineering.

In July 1999, the Academy first published Ingenia as a "quarterly prestige magazine aimed at opinion formers, to promote both Academy and engineering achievements."

The magazine, like the Academy itself, crosses the boundaries between engineering disciplines. It aims to be authoritative but also accessible. It has a circulation of 11,100 and is sent free-of-charge to Academy Fellows and senior engineers in industry and academia. Recent surveys show that an average of four people read each copy and, as at December 2015, the online version receives 150,000 visits a quarter. It is also mailed out to those with general and specific interests in engineering worldwide and to every Head of Science of schools in the UK that have a sixth form.

The Ingenia website was launched in Summer 2007, as a way of providing - in both html and pdf formats - the quarterly magazine online. The website has been constructed to enable cross-over stories and related engineering material to be referenced and linked to. This makes it an important resource for those with a general as well as a specialist interest in engineering stories.
