ABOUT THE EVENT

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’

Dynamic Design Groups

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.

01 - Embedding Sustainability in Engineering Education

02 - Virtual Collaboration for Impact and Engagement

03 - Agile Innovation Systems and Ecosystems

04 - Learning from Each Other

05 - Learning How to Learn Continuously

06 - Intra & Entrepreneurship at Scale

07 - The Engineer of the Future

08 - Agile Engineering Education

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.
