Engineering education in the United Kingdom is at the point of embarking upon an interesting journey into uncharted waters.
At no point in the past have there been so many drivers for change and so many opportunities for the development of engineering pedagogy.
This paper will look at how Engineering Education Research (EER) has developed within the UK and what differentiates it from the many small scale practitioner interventions, perhaps without a clear research question or with little evaluation, which are presented at numerous staff development sessions, workshops and conferences. From this position some examples of current projects will be described, outcomes of funding opportunities will be summarised and the benefits of collaboration with other disciplines illustrated.
