Event Count Down

WEEF 2017 is hosted by the Society of Engineering Education Malaysia (SEEM), Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) and the International Federation on Engineering Education Societies (IFEES), in collaboration with the Malaysian Council of Engineering Deans.

The 21st Century, with its novel Grand Challenges, the ever-complex systems and problems, is deemed as the age of collaboration. In preparing engineering graduates who are ready to face the current and future challenges, as demanded by stakeholders and accrediting bodies, there are numerous calls for academics and institutions of higher education to collaborate and synergize with various sectors in designing and organizing programs and curricula to meet the desired outcomes. In today’s complex world, success will only come with synergistic collaboration between the related parties.

The World Engineering Education Forum (WEEF) 2017 is a platform for bringing engineering educators and leaders, industry, governmental organizations and NGOs together to form fruitful and long-term collaboration, as well as to be involved with the larger international engineering education community. With the theme, "The Era of Synergistic Collaboration", WEEF 2017 aims to inspire international level cooperation among participants and form a lasting community in engineering education with the following systematic programs and activities.

  •    Special sessions (roundtable discussions, forums, short workshops)
  •    Networking & collaboration opportunity sessions
  •    Exhibitions (industries, universities & research groups)
  •    Asian Technical University Network (ATU-Net) Presidential Forum
  •    Parallel paper presentations & poster sessions (RCEE & RHEd, STEAMEC)
  •    Closing: brief presentation of White Paper and handing over WEEF 2018 to USA.
  •    Student activities: Global Student Forum and Global Entrepreneurship Challenge

We would like to welcome you to join this global community of engineering education, as well as participate and contribute to WEEF 2017.
