Abstract

In an era of rapid economic growth and industrial development in developing countries in Asia, engineering education systems in these countries are under increasing pressure to meet the demands of the local labour markets. At the same time there is a lack of interest from students in engineering in Europe. With support from the Asia-Link Programme of European Commission, three projects on engineering design and manufacture, led by the University of Strathclyde, have been undertaken by eleven Institutions in nine countries in both Europe and Asia. These projects aim at establishing a European and Asian (EUROASIA) network in engineering design and manufacture, contributing to the demands of today’s multinational engineering industries, and promoting local development through engineering education for both Asia and Europe. One project has been successfully completed, and the other two projects are still ongoing. Overall, this network in engineering design and manufacture has been successfully built up; the proposed deliverables and achievements have been made; and the impact in the engineering sectors of Asian partner countries is positive and remarkable.
