Visiting Professors

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.

Under the scheme, senior industry practitioners deliver face to face teaching and mentoring at the host university. They may also contribute to postgraduate teaching, curriculum development (such as the development of new modules/programmes) and strategy development. This award provides up to £10,000 per year over three years for a Visiting Professor to support the university with these activities. read more
