The paper opens with a review of the general background to engineering education in the United Kingdom, commenting on some effects of social ideas on educational institutions and their curricula. A review is made of the recent and present situations in the secondary schools, with special attention being given to the curriculum of those who subsequently continue their studies full-time in universities and colleges. The curricula in these latter institutions is then reviewed and some of the teaching problems are outlined. The paper concludes with some speculation about future trends.
