Recruitment and Admissions Forum 2014

The annual Recruitment and Admissions Forum took place at the Institution of Mechanical Engineers on 10th November 2014 convened by EPC Recruitment and Admissions Sub Committee chair, Professor Mike Bramhall.

2014-11-10 13.22.59Colleagues from Sheffield Hallam, Imperial College, the Engineering Development Trust, FabLab, Women in SET and Primary Engineer joined delegates to share details of their activities to encourage the study of engineering.

We were then joined by Dr Paul Wakeling of the University of York who has been asked by HEFCE to evaluate the funded postgraduate pilot schemes to improve diversity and participation in master’s-level STEM education. We rounded off the day with workshop sessions on current perspectives and issues for admissions tutors and the increasing role of placements and internships in attracting students to engineering programmes.

We’re grateful to the National Centre for Universities and Business, BP, NTR, enginterns and the universities of Leeds, Coventry, Sheffield Hallam and Trinity St David for supporting those sessions.

We also provided a summary of the results of the EPC’s 2014/15 survey of the enrolment experience of member institutions.

EPC members may access a range of student enrolments, applications trends and analysis via the Data explorer.
