The systemic transformation of engineering education has its roots in the decade before the Covid-19 pandemic.  Engineering faculty and their institutional leaders across the world were driving forward changes in the engineering curriculum to ensure that tomorrow’s engineers have the competencies needed to tackle the economic, social and environmental challenges of the 21st century.  But the pandemic has been an additional catalyst for change, necessitating major reforms to program design and delivery and the wider student experience.  Together, these changes are set to have a major impact on the future trajectory of the engineering education sector. 

The talk will discuss findings from the Crisis and Catalyst report, which examines the impact of Covid-19 on engineering education worldwide.  Drawing on interviews with members of the engineering education community from across 36 countries, the talk will explore the likely impact of this systemic shock on the direction of travel of the sector and the state-of-the-art in the field.
