Education Committee

Date published

Our Education Committee helps shape our education strategy and liaises with engineering educators.

The Committee considers how to address relevant issues raised by government agencies and bodies like the Engineering Council.

It also monitors the work of the Joint Board of Moderators, approving its recommendations to accredit engineering degree courses.

Members also work closely with the Board to determine strategic priorities: how, where and when to supply members with education resources, training and events.

The Committee also provides direction and oversight of the Academic Qualifications Panel.


  • Institution President
  • Chair
  • Up to 12 members
  • Representatives from the Joint Board of Moderators and Engineering Council.


Get involved:

Membership of the Education Committee is a way to share your knowledge, provide thought leadership, and help shape the future of engineering education.

It also makes a valuable contribution to your Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

As a member you will meet four times a year to monitor the progress of related panels and working groups, and advise the Board on matters regarding education strategy.

You will have full access to all Education Committee meeting minutes and other related documents.

We invite expressions of interest in committee membership each September, contacting all members except Student Members.

Contact the committee if you have questions about their work.
