Agile Engineering Education: Developing the Next Generation of Engineering Innovators, Experts and Leaders for Our Ever-Evolving World
Organised by The Global Engineering Deans Council and Petrus in partnership with the International Society for Engineering Pedagogy and TU Dresden’s Faculty of Transportation and Traffic Sciences, Institute of Traffic Telematics
Over 90 participants from 27 countries across 6 continents gathered both online and in Dresden, Germany to reflect together on lessons learned both collectively and individually over the challenging past 18 months. We explored how universities, companies and our stakeholders can work better together to prepare for and pre-empt the global challenges that lie ahead focusing on 8 key themes centred around ‘Agile engineering education: Developing the next generation of engineering innovators, experts and leaders for our ever-evolving world’
During the event, participants were inspired by our speakers who shared their insightsand expertise ahead of the Dynamic Design Group activity.
In unique and engaging design groups we brought together stakeholders from academia and industry to address the most prominent challenges we face in engineering education right now. Each participant shared their input on each theme in a dynamic brainstorm session and the outputs were captured in the sketches below.
Participants were then challenged to design a response relative to their chosen theme, leveraging the experience and knowledge of the whole design group. The resulting output was extraordinary in the dynamism of the format and the scope of the ideas presented. Watch the presentations from each group below.
To maintain the highly interactive nature of the event which allows every voice to be heard, participation is by invitation only with the number of places available deliberately low. We’d be delighted to hear from more potential participants and contributors so if you would like to receive an invitation, please get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org
A small number of engaging, interactive sponsorship opportunities are available to support the event, our publications and outreach activity. Find out more here or contact email@example.com
