The Centre for Engineering and Design Education

Engineering and Design Educators Network – EDEN

What is EDEN?

The Centre for Engineering and Design Education facilitates an Engineering and Design Educators Network (EDEN).  Focusing on learning and teaching issues from an engineering and design perspective, EDEN is intended to provide practitioners with a range of opportunities to share and develop good practice.

EDEN Seminar series

CEDE hosts an occasional series of EDEN Seminars which primarily address topics requested by Loughborough University’s engineering and design schools, with expert speakers drawn from the Centre’s extensive network of contacts, both internal and external.

Upcoming seminars – watch this space for 2015-16 programme!


Further information about past seminars can be found from the listing below.


In November 2012, CEDE launched a new initiative – EDEN FLIX, a series of highly acclaimed, thought-provoking and inspirational documentaries on issues related to engineering, design and social consciousness.  For further information about upcoming screenings, visit the EDEN Flix web page.

For further information about EDEN, please contact Dr Sarah Bamforth.
