New approaches to engineering higher education: case studies

All the BEng (Hons) with Foundation year in Biomedical /Chemical /Mechanical /Product Design Engineering programmes have been designed with the underlining principles of inclusive engineering and Conceive Design Implement and Operate (CDIO) approach to learning. CDIO education approach has been shown to close the engineering skills gap, and produces professional practicing engineers, (Crawley, et al, 2014). The engineering educators are also adopting Beddoes (2018) Toolkit to ensure the facilitation of good inclusion practice. The projects have been identified and provided by local industry. The approach is to enable the programme to develop engineering principles and practice of the students, and also enable the students to engage and contribute to local businesses. As all the engineering programmes are newly developed and a new offering to the Kent and Medway region in terms of engineering provision, the curriculums have been co-designed with local industry to support the development of industry ready engineering graduates
