In this paper we discuss the new demands put on university faculty for involvement in delivery of Continuing Engineering Education. CEE programmes are often composed in the same way as on-campus programmes – which means straight forward for teachers to conduct. However, the needs for new knowledge and new competencies in small and medium sized enterprises and for teams in larger enterprises are very often not covered by such academic defined courses. The need for tailor-made programmes is increasing. This is a new situation for university faculty, and we conclude in this paper, that faculty training needs to be prepared for the future involvement in research based knowledge transfer.
