|Abstract:||This paper describes the process of developing a structured induction program for postgraduate research students. The program curriculum attempts to make explicit elements of research and professional cultures in the field of Mechanical Engineering, and to foster the skills and knowledge needed by students to participate in them. Initial findings from surveys of students and staff reveal that the program has succeeded in improving students’ research communication and general progression through candidature. They also suggest that students appear to be showing less initiative in their approach to research, a finding that has particular relevance to the Engineering profession.|
