Funded Engineering Projects under the National HE STEM Programme
The Royal Academy of Engineering (the Academy) is supporting the National HE STEM Programme (the Programme) through collaborations with the Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) to encourage the exploration of new approaches to recruiting students and delivering programmes of study in engineering. It enables the transfer of good practice across the HE STEM sector, facilitates its wider adoption, and encourages innovation.
The Academy has received funding through the Programme to support engineering activities in England and Wales. The Academy opened three calls: March 2010, October 2010 and March 2011, inviting all HEIs in England & Wales to bid for small scale engineering projects. Under this scheme, the Academy received a large response of high quality bids and finally funded 60 small scale engineering projects over three calls.
These projects mainly fall under one of the three following themes:
- HE Innovation Projects including Employer Engagement
- Engineering for Society: Diversity and Inclusion in Engineering Education
- Education Research
Apart from the above 60 small-scale projects, the Academy has also funded 5 large-scale Engineering Outreach Projects, one in each region (Wales, North-West, South-East & London, North-East & Yorkshire, and Midlands & East Anglia).
All these funded projects focus upon sustainable activities with the potential to achieve long-term impact within the HE sector.
