This report sets out the findings of the CIHE Task Force on Manufacturing and Engineering Talent, focusing on core challenges necessary to lay the foundations for highly-successful, richly-innovative, globally competitive businesses by 2030.
The research includes an exclusive survey of female undergraduates to reveal how female enrolment in engineering can be increased and specially commissioned case studies on engaging with business on course content.
This report provides a summary of the exclusive research conducted for the CIHE (now NCUB) Task Force on Manufacturing and Engineering Talent, surveying 600 second and third year female undergraduates with strong numeracy skills to understand their views of manufacturing and engineering.
