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.
