This publication represents the output of the engineering and built environment discipline project for the Enhancement Theme on Research-Teaching Linkages: enhancing graduate attributes.

The publication is based on a study of the issues arising in linking teaching and research in engineering and the built environment through an examination of the relevant literature on issues, strategy, good practice and successful implementation relating to these disciplines. Attention has been paid to the relationship with professional accreditation and the multi-disciplinary nature of the professions and the students' educational experience. A survey of different approaches to the linkage in Scotland was undertaken through a series of workshops, case studies and focus groups across undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. This has been supplemented in this report by international exemplars taken from the literature. The report concludes with a set of outcomes and recommendations for the disciplines.
