Excursus. The Dearing Report and SARTOR: the Institution Still Awaits a More Positive Vision

Within the past few days the Engineering Council has placed its new version of Standards & Routes to Registration (SARTOR) on general release. It appears against the background of Sir Ron Dearing’s report into higher education published a few weeks back. In discussion with Richard Eastwood, the Institution’s spokesman on SARTOR, some of the underlying issues in engineering education came to light, issues which still await proper examinution despite the weight of words devoted to them. This commentary was compiled for The Structural Engineer by John D. Allen.
