The UK & Ireland EERN is pleased to announce that their Annual Symposium is back ‘live and in person’ following their virtual events of recent times.

This year’s Symposium will be hosted by WMG, University of Warwick. Building on the success of their previous events, colleagues are invited to submit abstracts for presentation at: The Student Experience: From Evolution to Revolution? The contribution of pedagogical research in enhancing engineering education.

The event itself is NOT an EPC-run event. Once more details are available you will be able to click the ‘Register’ button below to be redirected to an external website to register.

ALT South #TechThursdays – Directed study, ChatGPT led independent study and Exam revision

Join the ALT South #TechThurdays event with Dr. Manish Malik and Dr. Jebraeel Gholinezhad from the University of Portsmouth to learn about an inclusive innovation, Examopedia – the collaborative exam revision service that has helped academics improve teaching and support ALL students since 2007. With closed book exams returning back after the pandemic, students are in need of extra practice and support to succeed. Examopedia provides the perfect solution, offering an innovative approach to exam preparation that has already been successfully used in one engineering school before the pandemic. It can also support staff and students where open book exams are continuing to be used. By tapping into the cultural and social capital through the use of ChatGPT, Examopedia promotes independent study, improving students’ confidence and overall academic performance for ALL students regardless of their academic background.

Whether you’re ready to start your career in teaching or just curious, the Department for Education (DfE) wants to answer your questions at their ‘Get into teaching’ events.

There will be a total of nine events delivered across two months, throughout the UK. To find out the dates and locations for each event, please click the ‘Dates and Locations’ tab.  Please note: this is NOT an EPC-run event, please click the ‘Register’ button below to be redirected to an external website where you can register to attend.

Educating for Sustainability: Innovative engineering curriculum empowering students to develop sustainable solutions that drive the circular economy

Siemens logo

Siemens sees enormous concern for sustainable development amongst youth all over the world, but little direction or support dedicated to empowering them to solve the world’s challenges. This may be contributing to a sense of hopelessness which is, in turn, leading to diminishing enrollment and attrition in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) programs at the tertiary level.

Siemens drives sustainable innovation by seamlessly combining the real and the digital worlds as digitalization is the key enabler of the circular economy. As a core tenant of its DEGREE framework, Siemens will enable the technical education of their customers’ future employees and peers to address global sustainability challenges.

Sustainability skills & mindset: adapting engineering education to address the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)



This new initiative, designed for engaged faculty worldwide, provides the opportunity to get insights, share ideas and feedback, and exchange good practice with peers in academia and across industry on embedding sustainability in engineering education.

Together with a broad range of industry representatives, including Siemens, participants will exchange ideas on topics from curriculum development to credentialing; from emerging technologies to future skills and more.


Active participants will receive a digital badge in recognition for their contributions to the network



Registration is now open for the “Engineering Ethics: Maintaining society’s trust in the Engineering Profession” report launch webinar. This event marks the publication of this important work produced the Engineering Ethics Reference Group (a joint committee of the Royal Academy of Engineering and the Engineering Council).


Ethical practice has long been part of the behaviours (together with sustainability and inclusion) which make a profession aspirational and trust-worthy. Engineering has been working for many years on embedding ethical engineering in professional practice. This report is next step in this work, drawing in progress so far and launching a new vision. It also includes actions to support that vision, and embed it in the culture of professional engineering.
In this webinar, you will hear from the Chair of the Engineering Ethics Reference Group, Professor David Bogle FIChemE FREng, followed by a panel discussion with Chi Onwurah MP, Professor Chris Atkin FREng FRAeS (Chair of the Engineering Council), Dr Ollie Folayan (Chair AFBE-UK Scotland), and Maitheya Riva (early career engineer representative, IOM3).
Register now for the opportunity to hear about the report, and how the profession is working to embed ethical practice across engineering in the UK.

Further details, including the programme for the event and how to register are available on the RAEng website.

The Sixteenth International Conference of Multiphysics will be held virtually on 9-10 December 2021.
Agile engineering education: Developing the next generation of engineering innovators, experts and leaders for our ever-evolving world.

The GEDC Industry Forum brings together engineering education leaders from around the world with senior executives from leading industrial and technology companies in a unique, interactive format. From socially conscious engineering to ethics, micro-credentials to rapid innovation, the themes and content will reflect the most important issues of the moment, allowing participants to design the way forward together. This event is designed specifically for Engineering Deans, Department Heads and equivalents to interact with peers and industry leaders. We encourage relevant EPC members to consider this opportunity to engage and share best practise within a global community. Find out more and request an invitation.
