This paper reports a study of innovative and traditional engineering programmes at the University of Salford, UK Attention is given to student entry, and to course evaluation and improvement. Using the Myers-Brigg Type Inventory (MBTI) and the Technical Students' Learning Environment Preferences questionnaire (TSLEP), data were obtained about personality type and student developmental level. In addition, a selected group of the students were interviewed to measure their cognitive levels as defined by Perry's model of intellectual and ethical development, and to assist in the validation of the TSLEP questionnaire. Application of the TSLEP and the MBTI instruments to engineering students at North Carolina State University and the State University of New York at Brighamton generated further data which are used to make US/UK comparisons and to suggest ways in which the scope of engineering education might be expanded to meet the needs of an increasingly diverse student body. © 1994 Kluwer Academic Publishers.
