A number of new courses are springing up in the UK with one common feature - they are all appealing to a more diverse range of applicants.
This one day workshop will take place in October at the Warwick Manufacturing Centre and will look at the various new models in engineering education that are appealing to a more diverse range of applicants. Our speakers will explore the various differrent courses and ideas that are currently in the planning with a view to sharing best practice and creating a new type of inclusive engineering education.
