There have been a number of recent developments in higher education which could - and probably should ? impact on the teaching of materials and other engineering disciplines. In this presentation I will review the adoption (and future potential) in Materials and Engineering Education of generic developments such as MOOCs, flipped classrooms, the Materials Genome Initiative and on-line delivery, together with some specific initiatives such as the Institute of Making, the Elite Engineering Programme and the Royal Academy of Engineering's Visiting Professor programmes.
