The need for a reliable supply of engineering talent is accepted globally, but in many parts of the world the many challenges mean that this is not easily achieved. Even if the graduate supply is a reality, often there are concerns about the quality of the engineers entering the workforce. This chapter will explore this landscape, and after identifying the many challenges, explore solutions and potential ideas for the future of engineering education and the university/industry collaboration.
