3rd International Engineering Education Forum, Beihang University

Time:2021-06-17

 

The coming era of 4th Industrial Revolution, the rapid development and integration of AI, information technologies, intelligent manufacturing and new energies, and the implementation of different ways of education promoted unexpectedly by the COVID-19, call us to re-think our traditional engineering education: have we prepared our students sufficiently to face this rapid-changing world? How could we cultivate better their multidisciplinary capabilities to tackle complex problems in a fast-changing world? The third International Engineering Education Forum (IEEF), hosted by the School of General Engineering (SGE), Beihang University, aims to promote the discussion of this global concern by inviting global leaders in future engineering education to share their vision with integration of the latest practice.

 

The School of General Engineering is one of the earliest schools in China, supported by the Minister of Education and Ministry of Science and Technology of China, dedicating to future engineering education in a global setting. The IEEF was initiated by Beihang University in 2018, with the first one focusing on “Curriculum Design to Serve 21st Century” and the second one on “Developing Engineering Leaders for the 21st Century” in 2019, where over 400 participants all over the world attended. The theme of the third IEEF is on “Tackling Grand Challenges with Interdisciplinary Science”, which will be held both online and off-line.
