Excursus. Redressing the Balance in Higher Education: a Major Opportunity for Sir Ron Dearing's Inquiry

Dr James H. Armstrong, whose services to engineering and education were recognised by the award of an OBE in the New Year Honours, retired from the BDP partnership in 1989. Since then he has become an increasingly influential figure in the realm of engineering education. He is Chairman of the Higher Education Foundation and, as a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering and member of its Education Committee, he has played a key role in setting up the Visiting Professors Group, now around 140 strong.
