This international conference aims to provide a platform to consider how we can inspire the next generation of engineers, from attracting more young people to consider the profession through to engaging students in universities and the workplace. The conference is dedicated to enhancing the quality of higher education in all engineering disciplines and will serve as a forum for the sharing of innovation and effective practice. It will provide delegates with the opportunity to critically and creatively engage with new ideas and research that might support the development of activities and approaches in the future.

Abstracts for full papers, engineering education research discussion papers and interactive workshops are invited that address the themes for the conference:

  • inspiring young people to study engineering
  • engaging and retaining engineering students in their studies, including innovative curriculum developments
  • preparing the engineers of the future, including sustainable development, internationalisation and globalisation of the curriculum
  • continuing the professional development of practising engineers, including employer engagement and work based learning
