WEEF – GEDC 2018 – Peace Engineering

WEEF - GEDC 2018 - Peace Engineering
 
12 – 16 November 2018, Albuquerque, USA
 

On November 12 through 16, 2018, Albuquerque, New Mexico will be the host city of WEEF-GEDC 2018, the joint annual summit of the International Federation of Engineering Education Societies (IFEES) and the Global Engineering Deans Council (GEDC).

WEEF-GEDC 2018 will address the future of engineering, and provide a platform for University presidents, company
chief executive officers, authorities from multilateral organizations, research and development centers, non-governmental organizations, and funding agencies to share education trends, research and best practices and discuss pressing issues and varied approaches. The goal is to seek global collaborations.

The 2018 theme is Peace Engineering

Peace engineering envisions and works towards a world where prosperity, sustainability, social equity, entrepreneurship, transparency, community voice and engagement, and a culture of quality thrive. Engineers have the power to play a vital role in delivering creative solutions that can radically transform and improve human and natural wellbeing.

As we educate future engineers, we must ensure that they embrace their role as engineers of peace. We must provide them with the skills, understanding, capacity for reflection, sense of social responsibility and ethics, and resources to successfully navigate the socio-political impacts of their projects, engage in transdisciplinary developments and frankly, imagine, design, and create a better world for us all.
