The Engineering Council and Professional Engineering Institutions (PEIs) are aware of disruption to recognised programme delivery and/or assessment as a result of industrial action across many UK universities, and that RAAC concrete may be preventing access to some campus buildings.
Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) must inform PEIs of any changes to recognised (approved or accredited) programmes.
The impact of disruptions such as a marking and assessment boycott or closure of buildings may include changes to programme delivery format, module order delivery, assessment methodologies, re-scheduling of learning and assessment into holiday periods or later years of study, and possibly extension of end dates to enable work or assessment that has had to be suspended to be completed.
However, there are some potential measures that might be considered to avoid or limit disruption caused and enable student progression. These are outlined in our guidance document.
