Thank you for your interest in the World Engineering Education Forum! Conceptualized by the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) and the International Federation of Engineering Education Societies (IFEES), the WEEF will be a rare opportunity to meet and have discussion with stakeholders from all stages of the engineering education pipeline. Read on for more detailed information.
A global gathering of engineering education stakeholders to improve the field through enhanced dialogue on the major challenges and through increasing the effectiveness of global partnerships, harnessing the expertise and commitment of the international community and of the local and regional players.
As communication and mobility barriers disappear and individual behavioral patterns transform, engineering educators and researchers are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of international dialogue. Global collaboration serves as a means to discuss common challenges and new approaches to deal with them, and to share examples of good practices with the global engineering education community. Singapore's role as global leader in economical and technological innovation makes it a strategic location for these international meetings. Connecting local and international stakeholders will not only add value to the global dialogue on how to positively contribute to the solution of the world's engineering grand challenges, but also to serve the strategic objectives of the region's engineering communities and institutions.
From research and innovation, engineering education, to continuing education, WEEF will bring together engineering faculty, deans and students as well as industry representatives, government officials and other interested parties in science and technology from all over the globe to discuss Engineering Grand Challenges of the 21st Century and nurture and enhance partnerships.
The World Engineering Education Forum (WEEF) provides a cutting edge and effective platform for communication and collaboration among the world's stakeholders in engineering education, locating itself strategically in a key strategic locale. The Forum will unite five engineering education international conferences/forums:
