Graduate Capability Work

Engineering e2e ran a workshop in 2015 that introduced industry leaders to the Graduate Capability Framework developed by Emeritus Professor Geoff Scott from the University of Western Sydney. Participants considered the capabilities valued by their industries and the engineering sector, and recommended they be incorporated into engineering education. 

This led to further New Zealand-based research and a proposal to facilitate collaboration between industry and educators to improve the relevance of engineering education.

Identifying and defining good practice

Engineering e2e commissioned Ara Institute of Canterbury to support providers to systematically identify and define good practice in teaching and learning, share that information with providers and support investment planning and quality assurance processes.

Three reports were produced:

Making tertiary studies in engineering more relevant

25 September 2017

We commissioned Otago Polytechnic to research a Professional and Graduate Capability Framework in the New Zealand context. In their report Making tertiary studies in engineering more relevant the researchers made recommendations next steps that the Tertiary Education Commission, engineering educators and employers, and other organisations could take.
