Abstract

Throughout the European Union both the proportion and the number of young people undertaking engineering studies are falling, due in part to demographic trends of declining birth rate. Balanced against that, engineers are one of the mainstays of the economy required for wealth creation and to maintain economic competitiveness in world markets. The education of young men and women is a key issue in terms of quality of education and quantity of persons involved. It is in the interest of the whole society to find solutions to the question of insufficient enrolment in engineering studies.
