ASEE GLOBAL SYMPOSIUM ON ENGINEERING EDUCATION IN THE GLOBAL ECONOMY
ASEE is pleased to present the ASEE Global Symposium for Engineering Education in the Global Economy to be held in partnership with Shanghai Jiao Tong University in Shanghai, China. October 24- 25, 2011. This symposium will bring together high level policy makers and thought leaders drawn from the academic, government, and corporate sectors into collaborative discussions exploring the role of schools of engineering as innovation engines for the global economy. Selected talks and panels will highlight current activities such as new research parks in China; innovative educational approaches in Asia and the U.S.; translation engineering research, workforce issues and entrepreneurship; and global partnerships between universities, industry and government. Focused working groups will identify opportunities for new initiatives and partnerships that can further the role of engineering education as a global economic driver.
The Global Symposium is a bold experiment that offers a more intimate venue within which to convene seniormost representatives from government, universities, and industry to define and explore critical issues in engineering education; to frame critical questions arising from changes in the technical, political, and social environments around the globe, and to incubate activities of on-going value to the stakeholders. This Symposium will facilitate candid dialogue among participants to foster self-implementing activities, and, where appropriate, to carry awareness of consequences to the wider public.
