This paper summarises the findings of a major study carried out during 1994 on behalf of the Overseas Development Administration. The study involved a survey of the current provision of engineering distance education from the major providing countries. This was followed by an in-depth investigation of the need for engineering training and the potential of distance education in satisfying those needs in three countries: the Czech Republic, Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe.
