AEDS Conference Focus

In the wake of the global changes that are re-shaping engineering education, the focus must be on quality and excellence in designing and delivering educational programs. Engineering education has been evolving from knowledge-based to skills-based, where emphasis is heavily placed on the outcomes of the educational program in shaping not only the knowledge, but also the skills and attributes of its graduates to prepare them to be future ready for the 21st century challenges. This inaugural two-day event will focus on outcomes-based engineering education and accreditation and new pedagogies and will bring together engineering deans, academicians and leaders of accreditation bodies to deliberate on important issues and trends impacting engineering education within the region and beyond.
