Description

Abstract
The new engineering provision at Canterbury Christ Church University has adopted the Conceive, Design, Implement and Operate (CDIO) pedagogy approach. In particular the MEng, BEng and BEng with Foundation Year are grounded in the fundamentals of Physics and Engineering Science. To inspire the potential students on the open day we have developed taster sessions to develop their understanding of the important factors in these subjects. The taster sessions comprise a selection of activities in the form of practical sessions related to Engineering Programmes at Canterbury Christ Church University. The activities offer potential applicants a flavour of learning activities and aim to achieve the following learning outcomes:
• Working in small groups students:
o Complete a preliminary engineering design exercise
o Communicate their ideas.
o Demonstrate an understanding of the project

This practice paper reviews this approach to engineering recruitment practice.
