Representation

The EPC represents engineering departments and academics at all levels across the higher education sector, throughout the engineering industry and in national policy-making. We engage with:

  • National and devolved government, particularly Department for Education (DfE) and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS);
  • Engineering sector bodies, such as the Royal Academy of Engineering, the Engineering Council, the professional engineering institutions (PEIs), and many other stakeholders;
  • Employers and employer organisations;
  • Universities, colleges and educational institutions.

Among our important representative work is that the EPC regularly contributes to consultations on behalf of EPC members – on REF, on TEF, on Brexit or the Industrial Strategy, to name but a few recent ones. As a member, we welcome your contributions – find out about recent or ongoing consultations here and see how we go about collecting members’ views by following our consultation protocol.
