Can technology deliver a better society? In a new podcast series from the heart of Westminster, The House magazine and the IET discuss with parliamentarians and industry experts how technology and engineering can provide policy solutions to our changing world.

On this episode of Engineering a Better World, we look at the rollout of 5G across Britain. Digital Minister Matt Warman tells us about the benefits for business and consumers and busts 'conspiracy theories' about 5G's safety, while Labour's digital spokesperson Chi Onwurah MP and Professor Will Stewart from the IET discuss how the new technology can empower people and create a 'truly connected world'.

Covering the impact of innovation in the manufacturing sector, including robotics and digital infrastructure, to questions about sustainability and the impact of the events of 2020, this discussion will better enable policymakers to shape effective policy in the manufacturing sector.We speak to Nadhim Zahawi MP, Darren Jones MP, and Professor Steve Evans and look toward the future of manufacturing.


This episode is a chance to celebrate women in engineering, looking at schemes such as the IET Young Women Engineer of the Year programme, and also to consider the ongoing barriers to women and girls pursuing a career in the sector.We speak to Baroness Berridge, Amanda Solloway MP, Ella Podmore, and Jo Foster about encouraging more women into the engineering sector.
