Our engineering education programmes and resources

The Centre for Engineering Education is an important member of the UK's teaching and learning development community.

We host the Engineering & Materials Education Research Group (an evolution of UKCME), collaborate in CDIO and lead or support many programmes and initiatives, including those you see below.

EMERG is run by Dr Tim Bullough (

In addition to our programmes funded by the University of Liverpool and national funding bodies, we provide fee-based consultancy services.

Core Materials: over 1650 open educational resources (OERs), available free to materials science and engineering teachers.

Into Engineering: if you are thinking of studying engineering, then this site has information, videos and quizzes to help you make the right choice.

Steel University: a virtual institution providing highly interactive, sophisticated e-learning resources, free of charge, in steel technologies.

Materials Classroom: housing interactive games, learning resources and quizzes for schools, colleges and anyone else interested in materials science.

UKCME: formerly an HEA-funded national subject centre, the UKME has a large library of learning materials for materials science. This is maintained here within the centre.
