This scheme supports the appointment of senior industrial engineers as Visiting Professors at UK universities. This industry-into-academia initiative aims to utilise the experience of the Visiting Professor to enhance student learning as well as the employability and skills of UK engineering graduates.
Under the objectives of this scheme, senior industry practitioners participate in course development, face-to-face teaching and mentoring of engineering undergraduates at the host university for at least 12 days a year for three years.
The Award provides the university with the support necessary for the attendance of a Visiting Professor to a maximum value of £10,000 per year over three years up to a maximum of £30,000 in total.
