The Centre for Engineering and Design Education


The Centre for Engineering and Design Education (CEDE) at Loughborough University was formed in 2011 to build on the nationally recognised achievements of two previous groups – The Engineering Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (engCETL) and the Higher Education Academy Engineering Subject Centre (EngSC).

Loughborough University and CEDE

Loughborough University is unique in the UK in having benefited from a series of evolving support centres specifically to support excellence in teaching and learning of engineering and design education during the past three decades.  The current Centre for Engineering and Design Education (CEDE), continues the legacy and builds upon a formidable heritage in pedagogic method and technology development by incorporating the former engCETL and Higher Education Academy’s national Engineering Subject Centre.  The key to success has been to co-locate and establish a team of professionals working in partnership with academics for the mutual benefit of staff, students and the University as a whole.  Over the past 18 years the Centre has gone from strength to strength and continues to be an essential, yet distinct component of the broader University support services.
