Project Details


We propose to use alumni to engage with and enrich our programmes. The alumni will be engaged across three departments (POLIS, Mechanical Engineering and Health) for both UG and PG programmes:
Tier 1 BSc Sport & Exercise Science (SES)
- Ezio Preatoni, Department of Health
Tier 2 MA Chinese to English Interpreting and Translating (CEIT)
- Yukteshwar Kumar, POLIS
Tier 3 MSc Engineering Business Management/Innovation & Technology Management
- (EBM/ITM)– Steve Cayzer, Mechanical Engineering
The types of engagement depend on programme-specific ILOs, and include mentoring, assessment, provision of real life case studies, and reverse mentoring. The engagement is tiered as shown above.
In tier 1 there is a single touch point. For SES there is a front-loaded involvement with alumni, which will enhance the teaching, providing inspiration and a link to real world practice.
In tier 2 there are a number of touchpoints throughout the year. Alumni will typically be involved in creating and assessing coursework.
In tier 3 alumni are deeply embedded in the program, providing mentoring and support for the students. For example they will assist students in creating a set of career objectives (relating to their time at Bath) that are then reviewed at a suitable checkpoint.
