    Abstract/Description

    This chapter focuses on the quality assurance (QA) of higher engineering education in the United
    Kingdom and Europe, by considering eight challenges which are predicted by the writer to be of increasing
    importance in the years ahead. QA in higher education is taken here as a process that sets out to assure
    society, and responsible bodies within it, about the quality of educational provision for students. The
    purpose of the chapter is to identify the present and forthcoming challenges and changes in QA in
    engineering education in the United Kingdom and Europe, in the light of present circumstances as well as
    of the historical context.
