Abstract

The development of professional engineers is a joint endeavour involving schools, colleges and universities and industry. Too often, these bodies have been siloed, influencing a single stage of linear pipeline, rather than being seen as part of a continual process that provides support to potential and professional engineers at all the different stages of their development. In redesigning our education programmes, we considered this broader view and aimed to develop programmes that connect with young people and practicing engineers outside of the traditional cohort. In this paper, we will outline the review process that took place as part of the Integrated Engineering Programme at UCL and give details of how we developed a strand of interconnected activities that forms the backbone of the curriculum across all the engineering departments at UCL.
