PRESS RELEASE     26th November 2019

TU Dublin, as project partners on the A-STEP 2030 project were pleased to present initial findings from the research study at the recent Engineers Ireland conference: Engineering Education: future skills, standards and mobility.

The event hosted at Engineers Ireland provided an opportunity or Engineering Education Researchers around the country to disseminate their findings to a captive audience interested in preparing our engineering students with the skillls necessary to meet the needs of the future.

Pictured is Una Beagon presenting findings from the A-STEP 2030 project which aims to address the lack of diversity in engineering programmes in Europe.  There are three activities, which include focus groups with students, academics and employers in four European countries, work around the values and motivations of young people and adult learners and culminating the in roll out of a learning and teaching activity which will be hosted in TU Dublin in 2021.
