Applications for 2019 round are now closed. The next round will open mid-February 2020.

This scheme is only open to UK universities.

This industry-into-academia initiative aims to utilise the experience of the Visiting Professors to enhance student learning as well as the employability and skills of UK engineering graduates whilst strengthening external partnerships with industry.

The Academy is committed to diversity and welcomes nominations and nominees from women and other groups who are currently under-represented across engineering, as well as recognising the full breadth of engineering.

This scheme is not intended to support research interactions between industry and universities, for which separate schemes exist.

Under the objectives of this scheme, senior industry practitioners participate in course development, face-to-face teaching and mentoring of engineering undergraduates at the host university for at least 12 days a year for three years.

This Award provides the university with the support necessary for the attendance of a Visiting Professor to a maximum value of £10,000 per year over three years up to a maximum of £30,000 in total.

If you are thinking of becoming a Visiting Professor and are not linked to a university then please contact Stylli Charalampous who will be able to support you in finding a suitable university.
