Prof. Michael E. Auer
Prof. Dr. (mult) Michael E. Auer is Vice-Rector and Professor of Electrical Engineering at Carinthia University of Applied Sciences Villach and Professor for Microelectronics at University of Klagenfurt, Austria. His current research is directed to technology enhanced learning and remote working environments especially in engineering.
He is author or co-author of more than 190 publications and leading member of numerous national and international organizations in the field of Online Technologies.
Michael Auer is founder and chair of the annual international IEEE EDUCON, ICL and REV conferences and chair or member of the Program Committees of several international conferences and workshops.
He works as an evaluator and coordinator of European Union funded research projects and is member in expert groups of the European Commission as well as US NSF.
He is an IEEE member since 1999 and has the grade of a Senior member.
Michael Auer is Founding-President and CEO of the "International Association of Online Engineering" (IAOE) since 2006, a non-governmental organization that promotes the vision of new engineering working environments worldwide. In 2009 he was appointed as member of the Advisory Board of the European Learning Industry Group (ELIG).
Furthermore he is one of the founders of the "Global Online Laboratory Consortium" (GOLC). GOLC is the result of an initiative started in 2009 at MIT to coordinate the work on educational Online Laboratories worldwide.
From 2010 - 2016 he served as President of the "International Society of Engineering Education" (IGIP).
During the World Engineering Education Forum (WEEF2015) he was elected as President of the International Federation of Engineering Education Societies (IFEES).
Dr. Phillip Albert Sanger
Dr. Phillip A. Sanger is a professor in the School of Engineering Technology in the Purdue Polytechnic Institute at Purdue University. At Purdue, Dr. Sanger spearheads the multidisciplinary senior capstone program, both domestic and international, where students solve real problems for industry. Prior to joining Purdue he was the Director of the Center for Rapid Product Realization (the Rapid Center) at Western Carolina University where he worked with hundreds of companies from the Piedmont Megalopolis from South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee utilizing this university-based product-development center to grow the economy and enhance the educational experience.
Before Dr. Sanger entered the academic world, he had a very successful 25 year career in industry developing, launching and commercializing new technologies. Many of these technologies are now taken for granted: superconducting magnets for magnetic resonance imaging, high performance accelerator magnets for the Superconducting Super Collider, low cost power electronics for electric automobiles, high temperature power conditioning for the next generation Army tank, high power SiC switches for power utility energy management and energy efficient glass fiber drawing technology. He has held industry leadership positions at Oxford Superconducting Technology, Westinghouse, Northrop Grumman and the SCC Laboratory.
