Enhancing physics graduate employability through curriculum development: enablers, barriers, and opportunities
A joint SEPnet & WRIPA Workshop, supported by the Institute of Physics
De Vere Orchard Hotel, University of Nottingham, Wed 18th July, 10am – 4pm
Chaired by Professor Sir William Wakeham and attended by 70 delegates from more than 25 UK universities.
A joint report by SEPnet (South East Physics Network) and WRIPA highlights the challenges for improving physics graduate employability in the current HE environment and offers some solutions.
- Key recommendations:
- A physics degree programme should move from one that emphasises factual knowledge to one of application of knowledge;
- Industry partners should provide input into curriculum-based learning experiences;
- Universities need to align graduate skills and knowledge with regional innovation and opportunities.
