University of Technology, Sydney

Recommendations are made on reducing attrition in areas of admissions processes, curriculum change, bridging pathways, peer-mentoring, and active learning. Other project themes included the development of workshops to support engineering academics, the revision of Engineers Australia‘s competency standards for the three accredited engineering qualifications, and a review of pathways and access to engineering qualifications. Five leaflets address key issues from the report.
