Engineering change: Surviving and shaping the policy environment

The EPC is delighted to launch the EPC Annual Congress 2019 which will help us navigate unprecedented engineering change to both survive and shape the policy environment. This year’s Congress will be held from 13th to 15th May 2019. This year, we are generously hosted by University College London in Central London.

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.  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.
