When developing education and training programs, providers
are expected to meet industry needs. Identifying stakeholders' needs can be a costly, difficult, and time-consuming process which is why it is often neglected or only given superficial consideration. The presentation will use the outcomes of a number of research projects undertaken in 2010 and 2011 to explore the following issues;
• Workforce needs
• The characteristics of AQF Level 6 VET and HE engineering programs
• Student and employer perspectives
• The roles of industry organisations
• Stakeholder engagement to develop graduate outcomes for a program
• Issues and opportunities
