2018 ASEE Engineering Research Council (ERC)

The West Arlington Gateway Hotel
801 N. Glebe Road
Arlington, VA 22203

March 12 - 14, 2018

The Engineering Research Council of the ASEE exists to support and enhance research in engineering, technology, computing and applied science in educational organizations.

Conference Goals:

The topics for this year’s conference reflects both the needs identified by responses to the ERC 2016 membership survey concerning roles, responsibilities and professional development for associate deans of research for colleges of engineering; and the 2017 survey concerning appointment characteristics and responsibilities for engineering associate deans for research. These topics include:

  • Considering where research development fits your responsibilities and goals
  • Mentoring mid-career faculty members to become research leaders
  • New research opportunities - university/corporate partnerships
  • New research opportunities - breaking into Federal agencies that are new for you
  • Research space, “the final frontier”, management and allocation
  • NSF leadership perspectives and advice to associate deans for research
  • Federal research and government relations in “a new world”

The meeting will use a combination of workshops, panels, presentations with Q&A, informal discussions and events such as the “no-host dinners” to provide attendees with the best opportunities for gaining knowledge and experience from both participating experts and your peers. We hope to be able to provide any presentations ahead of the meeting. We will also provide workshop outputs to the attendees shortly after the meeting.

Engineering deans, associate deans, department chairs and other engineering research leaders are encouraged to attend this conference.
