UK Report2A new report in the United Kingdom by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers proposes a major rethink of the role of that schools and colleges can play in promoting engineering.

The ‘Big Ideas: the future of engineering in schools’ report, supported by the Royal Academy of Engineering, focuses on how to insure that engineering has the presence it deserves in the UK school education system.

The report proposes that pupils should be explicitly taught about engineering and the manufactured world as part of existing lessons from primary level upwards.

The report also recommends broadening routes into the engineering profession by promoting flexible entry requirements for engineering degree courses.
