HEA Event: Building Confident Engineers

Successful engineering graduates require confidence in order to solve new problems, work with colleagues and excel in their careers. It has also been identified that confident engineering graduates are more likely to pursue careers in engineering. This workshop has been developed to consider how academics can enable engineering students to develop confidence through teaching, learning and assessment. In addition, the sessions have been designed to align with the appropriate NSS questions.

It is the first time that an NTT workshop has been sponsored by a professional engineering institution, the IET. Invited guest speakers (to be confirmed) will provide valuable context concerning employer expectations regarding desirable graduate abilities. During this event delegates will develop Top 10 Tips for building confident engineers. It is envisaged that delegates will be able to create case studies of their new practices which can be disseminated amongst the community.
