All Day

Location
The IET

On 18 November 2019 the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and Engineering Professors’ Council (EPC) are holding another joint conference on New Approaches to Engineering Higher Education at IET London: Savoy Place.

We will be showcasing changes that have been made to engineering courses since our first conference two years ago. We are now looking for universities, and the people within them, who have led the changes to create innovative and forward-thinking degree courses. We hope to focus not just on the changes that have been made but also how they were achieved, in the following areas:

  • Incorporating creativity into engineering
  • Broadening student diversity
  • Project work
  • Industry engagement in design and delivery
  • Workplace experience for students
  • Interdisciplinarity

The programme will be confirmed shortly, in the meantime, you can book your space here.

The Call for Case Studies is now closed. 

We asked those of you who think you have an innovative course that fits into any of these categories to submit case studies that can either be presented at the conference or be published in the supporting document due to be published shortly after the event.
Submission process

The call for case studies is now closed.

Any submission will be taken as an agreement that:

  • The material submitted can be published by the IET and EPC
  • The submitter, or their nominee, is willing and available to present their case study at the conference either in a five-minute presentation with questions afterwards or as a poster session.

Further information

Further information on the New Approaches initiative to date can be found on the EPC website.
