Royal Academy of Engineering welcomes applications from all areas within Engineering. We encourage applications from minority and under-represented groups in engineering, especially from women. The visiting professors scheme supports the appointment of senior industrial engineers as Visiting Professors at UK universities. This industry-into-academia initiative aims to utilise the experience of the Visiting Professor to enhance student learning, enhance the employability and skills of UK engineering graduates, deliver face to face teaching and mentoring at the host university. The scheme is now open for applications with a deadline of 4pm Monday 23rd May 2016. This year the Happold Foundation has provided additional funding to support one additional Visiting Professor in the Built Environment.
