The Engineering Professors’ Council represents the academic engineers in the UK, all branches of engineering are represented within the membership. Our primary purpose is to provide an influential voice and authoritative conduit through which engineering departments’ interests can be represented to key audiences such as funders, influencers, employers, professional bodies and Government.
