Tertiary Education - Future proofing the Defence engineer in a digital age

12 Sep 2019
Platinum Suite Level 3
People and Skills Day
Speakers
Mike Rose, Defence Engineering Champion Team Leader, Ministry of Defence and Programme Director - UK MOD

Against the current geo-political climate and associated security considerations lies the need to future proof our defence engineers in a digital age. This requirement sits within a multi-facetted, busy skills landscape, placing a particular emphasis on the importance of building and sustaining strategic partnerships across the Defence engineering enterprise. Part of that landscape includes the work of the Defence Suppliers Forum (DSF) for skills and people. This session provides an insight into the work initiated, based on the findings of its inaugural skills survey, specifically in the areas of tertiary education, reskilling and digitization.

  • Once again the Royal Navy is proud to be at the vanguard of DSEI 2019 and I look forward to what I know will be a hugely beneficial opportunity for us all to explore maritime warfare development with so many partners from industry and academia, and with our counterparts from overseas.

  • DSEI is a highlight within the defence calendar, I use it to find out what the most recent developments are in every technological area affecting for defence. Without DSEI I fear this sort of interaction, information exchange and knowledge of developments across all domains would be lost. DSEI is an invaluable international biannual event .

    UK Parliament
  • DSEI is a fantastic showcase for defence companies where international buyers, sellers, developers, thinkers, educators and the trainers can all get together. The UK defence industry is looking to recruit more engineers, scientists and developers into 200,000 jobs and up to 10,000 apprentices within UK defence companies. DSEI is an excellent tool to highlight the challenges the industry face as well as showcase its capabilities domestically and overseas.
