In 1980, Professor Lord Kumar Bhattacharyya CBE FREng FRS founded the Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG) to help reinvigorate UK manufacturing. Its mission has been to improve the competitiveness of organisations through the application of value-added innovation, new technologies and skills deployment, and bringing academic rigour to industrial and organisational practice.

Now a major academic department at the University of Warwick, it has become an international example of how universities and businesses can successfully work together. WMG delivers tailored education programmes to individuals, from schools to company boardrooms, in the UK and internationally.  

WMG will be hosting the Academy's next free CPD event for college lecturers.

The event will include:

  • a toolkit to support diversity and inclusion in engineering
  • sharing of engineering best practice
  • discussion and implementation of pedagogy 
  • tour and talk from WMG on the areas of energy and connected vehicles
  • the opportunity to use and take home 13 free contextualised interactive resources

Benefits of attending:

  • understand diversity and inclusion issues in engineering and hear about emerging best practices to address them
  • impart strategies for improving recruitment and retention of students from underrepresented groups
  • formulate approaches to tackle messaging and culture change issues that affect the take-up of engineering
  • share experiences and best practice in teaching mechanical and/or electrical principles

If you sign up to the event, you will be asked to bring a practical, hands-on idea that you have implemented to teach mechanical and/or electrical principles to share with the group.
