2014 Engineering Deans Institute (EDI) Annual Conference

The Westin Kierland Resort & Spa
6902 E. Greenway Parkway
Scottsdale, AZ  85254

April 6 - 8, 2014


The annual ASEE Engineering Deans Institute (EDI) provides an opportunity for engineering deans- and only deans- to gather and discuss the crucial issues facing their schools, colleges, and profession. For a few days, a single-stream program fosters dialogue between deans, industry leaders, and those in important roles in research and government. Deans share best practices, learn about career prospects for their graduates, and develop a voice for engineering education and the role of engineering in society. Social activities and plenty of time for conversation encourage the cultivation of relationships and an intensely rewarding experience.

EDI is sponsored by the ASEE Engineering Deans Council and its Executive Board.
