A focus on…Networking

Our ambitious plans to overhaul our online presence and the way that we communicate with members is the biggest single investment the EPC has ever made. This is more than just a new website; it’s a complete overhaul in the way that we communicate with members, upon which many of the key elements on the EPC’s strategic plan rely. It will allow you to explore our huge archive of resources, reports and data analysis in a way that is timely and tailored to your interests. You’ll be able to interact with other members, sharing opinions, ideas and best practice. And the EPC will be able to communicate with you about what you need to know, when you need to know it.

Engineering Academics NetworkEPC Online

The Engineering Academics Network (EAN) is an inclusive community of colleagues at all stages in their careers, where everyone can share ideas, concerns and good practice, collaborate, find support or recommendations, and connect with colleagues across the UK and beyond. Every academic at any EPC member institution is automatically a member of the EAN. Those who are not currently attached to an EPC member as a member of staff –between roles or retired – they can still be a member of the EAN for a small annual fee. Building on the launch of the EAN last year via an interim LinkedIn group to discuss and share the key issues to us all, the benefits of being an EAN member have been optimised since we launched a beta version of the EPC’s new online platform.

On the EPC’s website members can now update their interests in their unique My profile section once logged in. Members will also receive personalised content to their email inbox in our newly formed bulletin, to update them on any new content that has been added to the site such as new articles and upcoming events every day, week or month depending on their preference. If members are active within our Committees or Discipline-based Communities they will also receive access to events, meetings and news specific to their groups. Members have access to our discussion boards where they can start threads themselves and / or comment on existing threads to discuss important topics for engineering academia but also to ask for help from peers in the EAN.
