Open Access research with a real impact...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde research outputs.

The Energy Systems Research Unit (ESRU) within Strathclyde's Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering is producing Open Access research that can help society deploy and optimise renewable energy systems, such as wind turbine technology.

Abstract

Engineering the Future (EtF) is a three year project funded by EPSRC, which became operational in September 2006 and which is based in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering of the University of Strathclyde and in the Departments of Electronics and Electrical Engineering and Educational Studies of the University of Glasgow. EtF seeks to address the challenges posed by the predicted shortfall between the numbers entering university engineering courses and the growing demands for graduate engineers to meet society's needs. To do so it aims to develop a methodology which sustains transformational change in engineering education. Using Electronic and Electrical Engineering (EEE) as a pilot study and located initially in Scotland, the Project's findings will be disseminated to ensure uptake on a UK basis.
