The 'Crisis and Catalyst' report has just been released, which explores the impact of COVID-19 emergency teaching on the engineering education sector. It addresses two central questions:

  1. What were the experiences of the engineering education community during emergency teaching?
  2. How will this systemic shock impact the direction of travel for the sector beyond emergency teaching?

The study draws on 226 interviews (from across 36 counties) conducted between August 2020 and April 2022 with university leaders, engineering instructors/faculty, educational specialists and engineering students.

The study is supported and co-funded by a consortium of engineering schools and universities: Aalborg University, Denmark; EPFL, Switzerland; MIT, US; NTNU, Norway; Olin College of Engineering, US; PUC, Chile; Royal Academy of Engineering, UK; SUTD, Singapore; Tec de Monterrey, Mexico; UCL, UK; and 4TU Centre for Engineering Education, The Netherlands.
