Visiting Professors (RAEng) – Applications now open

Applications for the 2017 round are now open. The closing date is 4pm on Tuesday 11 April 2017.

This industry-into-academia initiative, run by the Royal Academy of Engineering, aims to utilise the experience of the Visiting Professors to enhance student learning as well as the employability and skills of UK engineering graduates. This scheme is not intended to support research interactions between industry and universities, for which separate schemes exist.

Under the objectives of this scheme, senior industry practitioners participate in course development, face-to-face teaching and mentoring of engineering undergraduates at the host university for at least 12 days a year for three years.

This Award provides the university with the support necessary for the attendance of a Visiting Professor to a maximum value of £10,000 per year over three years up to a maximum of £30,000 in total.

Please see the Royal Academy of Engineering’s website for more information.
