Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


The need for highly educated, highly competent engineers to work in a global
economy has long been established. Numerous reports have been published over the years regarding the many challenges that engineers face in a modern global society. Globalisation continues to radically transform national economies for the better, despite increasing current demand to meet global markets. Engineers are at the heart of dynamic developments such as the way we design, produce, distribute and consume goods and services [1]. These global markets are increasingly competitive and expect high-performing, globally adept engineers. Industry also demands highly educated engineers who strive for the best in these competitive markets. Thus it is important that higher education institutions (HEIs) and engineering faculty in the UK ensures the delivery of high quality engineering education that considers changing economies and global challenges.
