The Engagement of Engineering Societies in Undergraduate Engineering Education

Workshop on Engineering Student Grand Challenges Competition

Event Details
University of Southern California

During the NAE Workshop on the "Engagement of Engineering Societies in Undergraduate Engineering Education" in January 2017, a number of participants expressed a strong interest in exploring the idea of creating a "Joint-Society" student challenge that encourages and demonstrates multidisciplinary solutions to the NAE Grand Challenges for Engineering.

As a follow on, the NAE will be hosting planning workshop on Sept 18, 2017 in Los Angeles on the USC campus. This one-day workshop will bring together engineering society leaders, engineering educators, students and other stakeholders to reach consensus on the competition concept and criteria and develop an implementation plan and timetable.

It is anticipated that the competition will offer the professional societies a collaborative platform to reinforce their own efforts to impact undergraduate engineering education while engaging students in a 'big-picture" view of the role of engineering in creating solutions for humanity.  

Space is limited and the workshop is by invitation. For more information contact Ken Jarboe.
