It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the World Engineering Education Forum (WEEF) and the International Engineering Student Summit (IESS), to be held in Chennai, India, from 13-16 November, 2019.
These annual events are gaining importance in the world of engineering and the global engineering community. These events are a platform for leading experts to gather, update, brainstorm, share information and speak on issues pertaining to engineering and technology, in general and current day engineering education, in particular. Attended by educators and top representatives from various engineering and technology sectors, these events have, over the years, provided an international arena for the exchange and dissemination of information about the latest developments in the domain of engineering education from around the globe.
The theme for WEEF 2019 is Disruptive Engineering Education for Sustainable Development with sub-themes focusing on: disruptions in Student-centered Learning; disruptions in the process of Engineering Education; disruptions in Institute-Industry Interaction; disruptive Technologies; socio-economic development through disruption.
We are privileged to host WEEF2019 in Chennai, India. India is a major education player in South Asia – with an active, matured and scholarly team of academics who are passionate and committed educators and promoters of change in engineering education, to meet 21st century needs.
We hope you will not miss this opportunity to be part of this and join us in recognizing and sharing the best in engineering education practices.
We are looking forward to hosting all our delegates in 2019.
