For the past several years, the American Society for Engineering Education’s Corporate Member Council, reflecting the voice of industry, developed a series of attributes representing the desired competencies needed by engineers in order to effectively live and work in a global context. Using a framework for assessing global competence developed by MIT and the International Institute for the Development of Engineering Academics, this workshop will describe the process to develop attributes of a global engineer; present a summary of key findings; discuss how attribute outcomes can be assessed in engineering education globally; and highlight the recommendations and implications for a variety of stakeholders, including professionals working in continuing engineering education.
