Different approaches to engineering doctorates across Europe

 
Our "roving reporter" and Chair of the Engineering Education, Employability and Skills sub Committee at the EPC, Clive Neal-Sturgess has been on the road again.  This time, he was representing the UK at a workshop entitled “The different Engineering Doctorates in Europe” organised by the European Engineering Deans Council, 4ING - the EPC's opposite number in Germany - and SEFI on the 16th September. Hosted by KU Leuven in conjunction with the 2013 SEFI Annual Conference, there were more than 60 participants with their presentations available here. It was highlighted that the UK was unique in Europe owing to the existence of a single “arbiter” of quality in the QAA whereas across the range of other countries, quality control was within the remit of the individual institution.  A full report from the event will be posted here when it's available.
