Abstract: This case study is the winning essay from the LTSN Engineering Teaching Awards 2003-2004. It has been developed from data gathered through an observation of the teaching component; interviews with the tutor; and student questionnaires and focus groups. All students in the School of Engineering at the University of Exeter study ‘Engineering in Society’. A novel teaching method has been introduced that incorporates the use of real world case studies and short, focused presentation opportunities. This case study introduces the background, students’ perspective, issues and benefits from this approach.
