EPC President speaking on BBC Look North

Acknowledgement: BBC Look North

Engineering Professors’ Council (EPC) President, Professor Stephanie Haywood of the University of Hull, appeared on BBC’s Look North last week in a segment about Hull’s upcoming Amy Johnson Festival.

This year’s EPC Congress will be held in Hull to coincide with the Amy Johnson festival (itself linked to the city’s Freedom Festival), which will feature an exhibition (“Engineered: Renaissance mechanics to contemporary art”) of 12 replicas of Leonardo Da Vinci’s flight and wind machines.  Professor Haywood underlined the Festival’s importance in inspiring young people to study engineering and that while maths and physics were important, engineering needed a broad range of skills including design and creativity.  This year’s Congress theme “The Art of Engineering” will reflect this with speakers from both industry and HE discussing new curriculum developments amongst a host of other issues key to the future of engineering in UK HE.
