UCL Centre for Engineering Education: New models in engineering education

Amidst continued discourse around a projected shortfall of engineering talent and talk of deregulation of HE coming from Government, this event seeks to explore how the higher education landscape may change in response.

Our speakers will bring differing, but complementary perspectives to open the conversation. As usual we will encourage our audience to take an active part in the proceedings.

We expect our collective crystal ball gazing to alight on areas such as the future role of accreditation, relationships with industry, fast track degrees, the emergence of private providers and the Teaching Excellence Framework.

Leading the conversation: Kel Fidler (previously Chairman, Engineering Council and former Vice Chancellor of Northumbria University) Karen Usher (Co Team Leader, New University for Herefordshire Project)
