Then, by 2011, the WFEO General Assembly approved the Executive Councils recommendation to change the Task Group on YE/FL into a full standing technical committee.
As the main priority of that task group, was the support of students and young engineers in order to facilitate communication among each other from the early stage of college studies, all the way to the newly graduated engineers.
Furthermore, as this standing committee provides educational and academic activities as well as organizes events, such as networking sessions, workshops, and forums, it has proven to provide invaluable experience to effectively support engineers as early as the beginning of their career.
In 2010 at the World Engineers’ Week (WEW 2010) in Buenos Aires (Argentina), the YE/FL committee held its first meeting.
One of our main missions is to recruit enthusiastic young engineers for developing and applying engineering principles for the benefit of humanity; and becoming a global reference point for international coordination, cooperation, and communication among young engineers worldwide…
