Best Practice in Engineering Education
The EPC has been working with the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), academics and industry for over two years to encourage and support changes to how students are taught to become engineers.
During this time, we have seen innovative courses that encourage project work, include industry whenever they can and work on increasing diversity.
Our recent conference (November 2019) showcased a wide range of case studies from universities, and the people within them, who have led the changes to create innovative and forward-thinking degree courses.
We have, with the IET, pulled together these case studies conference proceedings focus not only on the changes that have been made but also how they were achieved. Download the proceedings here.
In addition to the case studies, the day also included poster presentations from universities in the process of making some equally innovative changes to their engineering courses. The papers for these can be seen here:
|University of Hertfordshire
|Imperial College London
|University of Sheffield
|TEDI – London
|University of Strathclyde
