Africa Engineering Week 2018 / Africa Engineering Conference

 
17 – 21 September 2018, Mombasa, Kenya
 
Harvesting blue/ocean economy for accelerated economic growth: The role of the Engineer
 
The WFEO has agreed with UNESCO to hold an African Engineering Week annually, preferably in the month of September which is internationally recognized as the World engineering month. The first Africa Engineering week was held in South Africa in 2014. The second and the third were held in Zimbabwe in 2015 and in Nigeria in 2016. The fourth was held in Rwanda in 2017.

This year, the Institution of Engineers of Kenya (IEK) in collaboration with the Engineers Board of Kenya (EBK), the Federation of African Engineering Organisations (FAEO), the World Federation of Engineering Organizations (WFEO) and United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) have proposed to hold an international conference in Mombasa from 17 to 21 September 2018.

The theme of the Africa Engineering Week 2018 / Africa Engineering Conference (AEW 2018 / AEC) is “Harvesting blue/ocean economy for accelerated economic growth: The role of the Engineer”.

This is in line with the United Nations sustainable development goal No. 14 on life in the sea. Africa is surrounded by a large mass of ocean from which the continent can benefit from harvesting the resources therein. The Engineers will be expected to play a very significant role in harnessing these vast resources.
