Overview

The Engineering Deans Council Public Policy Committee of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) is the leadership organization of communication with the public sector available to the Engineering Deans Council (EDC) American Society for Engineering Education.

Objectives

Since both engineering education and engineering research are greatly impacted by public policy, it is entirely appropriate that a mechanism for close communication with the public sector be available to the Engineering Deans Council (EDC) American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE). In particular, it is important to make both the Congress and the President aware of the vital importance of the engineering profession to our society and to our economy. It is equally desirable to promote engineering education and research through the agencies of the Federal Government. Further, it is desirable to have a mechanism to enable both EDC and ASEE to keep abreast of public policy developments which affect the well-being of engineering education. The Public Policy Committee is a creation and standing committee of the Engineering Deans Council of ASEE and is designed for these purposes. While the Public Policy Committee is responsible to promote communication with the public sector, it is not a lobbying organization and does not function as such.
