Abstract

This paper presents inclusive industry-linked projects and research-informed-and-enriched curriculum for sustainable improved student educational metrics. A research project questionnaire was designed for data gathering besides the use of the researcher’s historical engineering curriculum teaching and research project supervision data. Monte Carlo simulations, t-test analysis and probability density functions modelling were implemented to obtain future-predicting reliable outcomes. The results of the analyses show that the student engagement improved by over 50 %; 100 % of the students who experienced industry-linked pedagogy with formative assessment feedback and feedforward achieved a distinction grade. 100 % of taught and supervised students gained employment into the industry; and/or embarked on further education (MSc and PhD).
