"Educating Engineers for Global Competitiveness” – Incorporating the Biennnal Conference on Engineering Education (UK)

The conference comes back to the UK after an absence of over 20 years. It is hosted by the University of Birmingham but with major input from a number of Midlands Universities. The Midlands is currently witnessing tremendous growth in the motor industry. The requirement for highly educated engineers who are able to operate in a competitive environment is established and the theme of the conference extends this to global competitiveness.

The challenge for educators, working with industry, is to ensure that the education and training of the engineers will meet this challenge both now and in the future.
