Turbulence ahead without proper skills.


A high-level initiative involving all 36 UK engineering institutes aimed at "ensuring the health of all areas of education and training that bear on the formation and progress of engineers" has now been under way for nearly 18 months. As HEJ editor Jonathan Baillie reports, the Education for Engineering (E4E) initiative has identified six immediate "policy priorities" it says the Coalition Government must embrace to safeguard UK engineering's future, increase interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) subjects, raise the UK engineering profession's profile, and highlight skilled engineers' contribution to society.
