MSc Engineering and Education Colloquium

The aim of the Colloquium is to showcase the work and research of students and alumni of the MSc Engineering & Education at University College London. We hope that the Colloquium will be a valuable platform for Engineering Education researchers, practitioners, and students to share and celebrate leadership and innovation in Engineering Education.

The three talks in 2022 below were given by alumni of the MSc Engineering & Education.

Emerging Technologies in Higher Education and Challenges for Teachers in Developing Countries
Lan Yang (Programme Officer for Curriculum Development at UNESCO-ICHEI)

Drawing from her professional experience and Doctoral research, Lan Yang discusses how digital technology, AI, and open educational resources (OER) can be used to improve the quality of higher education in developing countries in Asia and Africa.

Education and Skill Building for the Energy Transition
Samah Elsayed (Programme Officer at the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA))

Countries all over the world need to urgently transition to national energy systems that minimise energy-related emissions and limit climate change if they are to meet their zero-carbon goals. Samah explores current and future skilling needs for the energy transition and the key education and training measures and policies that will be required.

Pedagogic innovation on the IEP to support inclusive, future-proof Engineering Education
Chika Nweke, Ph.D. (Assistant Professor, UCL Engineering) 

In this session Chika looks at how an Engineering School reconfigured their teaching practices in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and how this might inform approaches to future-proofing Engineering Education.

International Women in Engineering Day

The Centre for Engineering Education celebrates International Women in Engineering Day by highlighting the achievements of outstanding women at UCL. National Women in Engineering Day was launched for the first time in the UK on 23 June 2014 by the Women’s Engineering Society (WES) to celebrate its 95th anniversary. Since that launch in 2014 the day has grown enormously over the subsequent years to the point where it received UNESCO patronage in 2016.  

In 2017, National Women in Engineering Day became international for the first time due to the interest and enthusiasm developed by the international audience and participants in the previous years. International Women in Engineering Day (INWED) was born to allow the celebration of women in engineering to become global.

Putting the Creativity Back into Engineering Education


International Symposium in Engineering Education (ISEE) 2018

The CEE was honoured to host ISEE in July 2018 with the theme, ‘Connected Engineering Curriculum - Learning Through Enquiry and Practice’. With a desire to create a Connected Engineering Curriculum, the major themes for ISEE 2018 were:

Connecting students with practitioners throughout their learning journey Building a through-line of enquiry activities into, and through, the programme Bridging student interaction across subjects, perspectives, and global regions Linking student academic learning with in-practice workplace education Assessing engineering specific deliverables directed at the pertinent corresponding audience Unifying the student experience across cohorts, programme progression, and graduate alumni


This review of engineering education, commissioned by LRF, provides a rallying cry for engineering educators to engage with schools, colleges and industry to reimagine engineering and the journey that young people will be making to become 21st century professional engineers. The launch was very well attended and included a keynote talk by Professor Anu Ohja, OBE, Director of the UK National Space Centre. The report was a culmination of two workshops; the former a global gathering of leading engineering education academics and the latter a highly insightful gathering of engineering students from across the UK.

Read the report Innovations in Engineering Education; Inspiring and Preparing Our Engineers for the 21st Century'.

EPC Congress

The CEE hosted the Engineering Professors’ Council Annual Congress in May 2019, which held the theme ‘Engineering Change’. Around a hundred academics came together to network and gain and share insights and stay in touch with developments in policy and practice in teaching, research and innovation, with keynotes from Lord Willets, former Minister for Universities and Science, and Baroness Brown of Cambridge, amongst other esteemed colleagues.
