Track 2. 21st Century Challenges in Engineering and Technological Learning

Rationale

How can a young engineer make a difference in the actual demanding professional world? And how can their academic background aid students to stand out? What do senior engineers seek and most value in a young professional?

Nowadays it is as important to address scientific expertizes as it is to address students’ social and professional competences. How can teachers help their students in this hard working task? Which characteristics should students have or develop in order to enhance their learning in active environments?

This track aims encouraging discussion around Engineering Education especially concerned with young professionals in this new challenging professional world.

Engineering Education organizations have been addressing these new professional challenges guided by general concerns such as: teamwork abilities, persuasion in multiple social contexts, creativity, handle complexity, leadership or strong work ethics. This stresses the importance of these competences being worked through college along with communication, scientific/technological expertizes, problem-solving or analytical/quantitative skills.

However, the perspective from academic and professional worlds can be quite different. So, both point of views should be acknowledged and more documented. The sharing of successful practices among and between these communities is essential to gradually improve the success of young engineers.

Topics

Some of the main topics regarding this track can be related to the following topics:

  • Project work in engineering education
  • First contacts with engineering profession
  • Improving engineering professional, social and/or scientific competences
  • Engineering graduate students’ competences versus companies’ professional needs
  • Long term vision about engineering education
  • Capstone projects versus professional internships
  • Successful merged practices from Academia and Industries
  • Multicultural aspects of engineering education
