Loughborough University, UK

Short description of the event: 

20 April 2015
The sequence of conferences "Mathematical Education of Engineers" held at Loughborough provides a forum for the exchange of ideas, practices and pedagogy in the mathematical education of engineers.

Within this framework, university mathematics teachers together with engineering colleagues and participants from industry are able to discuss enhancement and reflect on the engineering mathematics provision in the context of ever‐increasing demands of competence, effectiveness, quality and relevance. This conference aims to reflect the progress and experiences of initiatives within the teaching of mathematics to engineers in recent years, to debate areas of known concern and to learn together from current best practice.

The Programme will include invited speakers and contributed submissions (paper, poster, workshop). An informal Conference Dinner will be arranged in the evening.

Organising Committee: Dr Stephen Hibberd (Nottingham University), Prof Duncan Lawson (Newman University), Dr Carol Robinson (Loughborough University).
