EWB-UK & EAP Education Conference 2012
The EWB-UK & EAP Global Dimension To Engineering Education Conference 2012
26th March 2012
University College London
The Research and Education Conference traditionally is a one day event designed to bring students, academics, professionals and development practitioners together to discuss the role of engineers and technology in international development, with a particular focus on the work and study from EWB-UK’s Research and Education Programmes.
About the theme: 'Changing Course'
What happened on the day?
There were presentations, and panel discussions surrounding this year’s research alongside workshops on the global dimension of engineering education. The day had a broad range of attendees, from Deans of Engineering to first year students and included input from education systems and models all over the world through a mix of speakers and workshops. Special thanks has to go to the academics and professionals from South Africa, Germany, USA, Ecuador and Canada who shared with us their views on global context and gave us ideas global dimension is being incorporated into undergraduate education.
This is our first event of this type - it is an evolution of our National Research Conferences and is designed to give a holistic view of engineering curricula.
