Who is the FIRST INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ENGINEERING EDUCATION FOR THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY targeted at?

  • Lecturers in under-graduate and post-graduate engineering studies
  • Researchers in education and educational innovation
  • University students

What are the sessions in the FIRST INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ENGINEERING EDUCATION FOR THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY?

The scientific programme of the conference has been structured into five areas.

a) Service-learning and social commitment in engineering.
b) Engineering and development co-operation.
c) Environmental sustainability.
d) Corporate and business social responsibility.
e) Engineering and gender.

Key ideas which we will try to spotlight during the conference

Service-learning and social commitment in engineering. Engineering studies as an opportunity for taking on a greater commitment to the community.

Engineering and development co-operation. Development co-operation as a teaching and professional opportunity for engineering students and teachers.

Environmental sustainability. The criterion of environmental sustainability as added value in engineering education.

Corporate and business social responsibility. Economic sustainability as a requirement and not as an objective of engineering firms.

Engineering and gender. The gender perspective as a necessary (indispensable?) element amongst professionals of the twenty-first century.

 

And the following question which is common to all five areas: How should we formulate and address the competences of social responsibility and sustainability in undergraduate and postgraduate engineering studies?
