The Annual Congress is the big event in the EPC calendar – an opportunity to network, gain and share insights and stay in touch with developments in policy and practice in teaching, research and innovation. 

This year we have a programme of high-profile and expert speakers and the event is not to be missed by engineering academics in UK higher education, whether you’re a senior professor or have recently joined the profession.

The theme for this year’s Congress is ‘Beyond Borders’, exploring the many ways internationalisation requires universities and engineers to prepare themselves for a new world.

As the UK lurches towards Brexit and following the Government’s announcement to harden further the line on international students, the issue could not be more timely. On the one hand, finding a new place in the world will place new demands on attracting talented students and leading global innovation and research. But on the other, without international students and staff, even the viability of many engineering departments may be on the line.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

All academic staff in any engineering discipline – from early career staff through lecturers and researchers to department heads, deans of faculties, PVCs and VCs – anyone who wish to network with colleagues, develop their professional practice and stay on top of strategic and policy challenges.

The event is also open to non-academics working in engineering or in professional bodies, who have an interest in the graduate talent pipeline, in research and in innovation.

Please note: The EPC is dedicated to supporting early careers staff and, so, for the first time, we are offering 10 free full delegate places (with accommodation provided) to individuals who have been working in engineering in UK universities for less than five years.
