The Role of Professional Bodies Within Engineering Education

As the engineering industry moves into the digital era, ways of working are changing profoundly and this will in turn affect the role of professionals. Yet the means by which professional competence is developed and assessed has changed little in the last 20 years. The UK enjoys an abundance of professional engineering institutions and other bodies that support professional development but many of these appear to be not as well connected as they should be with young people entering the industry.

So what is the new role of professional bodies within engineering education? How can they adpat their professional development value proposition to members and employers in the digital world?

Phil Davis, Director of Techincal Learning & Development at Atkins will be giving the industry take on this, and

Jon Prichard, Chief Executive of The Institution of Chemical Engineers will be giving his thoughts from the professional bodies side.
