Meet Lincoln’s Engineering Heroes That Changed Our Lives At SPARK Engineering Festival From 3-5 May 2019

SPARK Engineering Festival will take place at Lincoln Cathedral, Lincolnshire from 3-5 May 2019. Since 2014, the festival exhibits exciting displays, which illustrate Lincolnshire’s impressive engineering heritage as well as present developments and future projects. The event celebrates engineering as a vitally important part of our modern society, which can make the future a better place for all. NMB Minebea UK supports the enjoyable and educational event for the third time.

According to the organizers, this years’ SPARK Engineering Festival will be even bigger and better than in previous years. The 3-day celebration of Lincolnshire’s engineering past, present and future will incorporate achievements in Civil Engineering for the first time. The construction of Lincoln’s new Eastern Bypass and its challenges are a prime example of the newly integrated discipline. The same applies to Lincoln Cathedral, the very impressive event location, which is a Civil Engineering masterpiece in its own right.

Together with numerous local engineering firms, NMB Minebea UK contributes to making this event enjoyable and educational at the same time. Over 40 organisations support the festival enthusiastically.

Engineering has always been an integral part of Lincolnshire. Lincoln’s engineers shaped the world with numerous engineering successes. SPARK Festival presents a journey through history to the present day and an outlook on the future. The goal of the event is to inspire the next generation of Lincoln engineers by introducing world-leading researchers and scientists with their worldwide achievements.

Chairman of the festival is Dr. Paul Taylor, Chief Advisor to Zhuzhou CRRC Times Electric Ltd (China), Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology and Honorary Professor in Power Device Technology at Nottingham University.
