In 2021 the Innovative Engineering Curriculum project began. Under the theme “Bringing life to engineering curricula” it is a multidisciplinary and multi-stakeholder collaboration between a number of academic institutions in South Africa and the United Kingdom, funded by a grant from the Royal Academy of Engineering. In this project, the goal is to understand the constraints as well as opportunities around developing integrated curriculum frameworks for engineering education in South Africa. Through the cooperation and participation of multiple South African engineering institutions we will share and build on our experiences of integrated projects and curriculum renewal. By working together, we aim to overcome some of the limitations present when institutions attempt curricular reform independently.
