Abstract

The Disability Discrimination Act requires schools, universities and colleges not to discriminate against disabled students and to make reasonable adjustments. Laboratories are an integral part of all engineering courses. Therefore they have to be accessible to all students and reasonable adjustments should include making laboratories accessible and not excusing disabled students from them. Adjustments to make laboratories more accessible to disabled students generally benefit all students and staff. Making laboratories accessible increases the pool of talent that can be attracted into the engineering profession. Many disabled people have had to exercise a lot of ingenuity to cope with an inaccessible world. The engineering profession could benefit from this ingenuity.
