Global Student Forum on Engineering Education

St. Petersburg State Polytechnical University, St. Petersburg, Russia

15th-23rd May, 2009

"GloCal Engineer: Qualities and Competencies"


Student Platform for Engineering Education Development (SPEED) in cooperation with International Federation of Engineering Education Societies (IFEES) and Russian Association for Engineering Education (RAEE) will gather 100 student leaders in St. Petersburg, Russia, May 15th-23rd, 2009 for the Global Student Forum (GSF) on Engineering Education to discuss the ideas on Qualities and Competencies of a Globally competent and Locally applicable engineer. The fusion of Global and Local skills provided a new term: GloCal Engineer and the overall topic of the event is therefore: "GloCal Engineer: Qualities and Competencies".

The GSF event is part of 3rd IFEES Global Summit, which will draw academics, representatives from government, industry and non-profit organizations, and increasingly students from around the world to discuss issues pertinent to engineering education.

The GSF, is a one week event, organised by students. Engineering Students and young professionals will discuss issues embedded in topic: GloCal Engineer: Qualities and Competencies. They will participate in workshops aimed at providing them with tools to find innovative solutions with the global perspective and apply them in their local communities.

Students will be a part of an international experience, submerged in the atmosphere of cross-cultural communication and creative thinking. They will get a chance to learn about already existing student projects, get involved and/or start their own regional and global initiatives with the aim of curriculum innovation and development in alignment with global economy.

Deadline: 30th of December, 2008

Hello Guys,

I am in Biotechnology Engineering. I did BSc (Hons) in Bio Engineering. Can I apply for that? I am dammed interested to see that Russian city. Have you heard the song MIDNIGHT VODKA by Chris de Burgh? It describes lot about a Russian City (Moscow).

Cheers,

Rema

Hello Frens,

Student Platform for Engineering Education Development is a global, non-profit student organisation that functions as an interdisciplinary network of engineering students, who aspire to provide opinion and create an impact on future development of engineering education and its effect on society and environment. SPEED was founded by student participants of the 1st Global Student Forum (GSF) in October 2006 during the 5th Global Colloquium on Engineering Education (GCEE), organised by the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE), in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The following years, SPEED co-organised the 2nd and the 3rd GSF with ASEE in Istanbul, Turkey and Cape Town, South Africa, and in cooperation with IFEES the 4th GSF in Bhubaneswar, India. SPEED hopes to expand the Global Student Forum initiative significantly in the coming years through global cooperation and feedback from students and through other activities to further enrich engineering education curricula worldwide.

The Global Student Forum program will focus on developing thinking from a global perspective and providing a local applicability to students ideas. Students will share ideas and discuss the skills and competencies of a modern successful engineer and how to implement such current practices into curriculum in order to improve engineering education. Students will participate in a series of workshops, discussions, presentations and creation of action plans that will enable them to become a factor of change in the development of engineering education curriculum.


Dear Ozaswee Rana ,Thank you very much for your interest.Yes we can meet at WNSO Nepal office so as to discuss more on this. Please let me know when will you be there?

6th Global Student Forum on Engineering Education organized in cooperation with 8th American Society for Engineering Education Global Colloqium .

Budapest, Hungary

9th - 15th Oct., 2009

The Student Platform for Engineering Education Development (SPEED) in cooperation with American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) will gather 100 student leaders in Budapest, Hungary October 9th-15th, 2009 for the Global Student Forum (GSF) on Engineering Education to discuss this years's conference theme “Ensuring Equitable and Diverse Global Representation with Engineering Education”.

The GSF event is part of 8th annual ASEE Global colloquium, which will draw academics, representatives from government, industry and non-profit organizations, and increasingly students from around the world to discuss issues pertinent to engineering education. With your help, we will bring student perspectives to this important global dialogue.

Through this one-week event, students will be a part of an international experience, submerged in the atmosphere of cross-cultural communication and creative thinking. Participants will take part in workshops aimed at providing them with tools to find innovative solutions with a global perspective and apply them in their local communities. They will get a chance to learn about already existing student projects, get involved and/or start their own regional and global initiatives with the aim of maximizing the student voice within the engineering education community.

The overall vision for the GSF is two-fold: to positively impact our student participants current position as budding global engineers eager to affect change within the engineering education and local communities; and to show the professional stakeholders that students are a much larger piece of this puzzle then they are currently given credit for and are entitled to a voice within the global engineering education dialogue.

“Ensuring Equitable and Diverse Global Representation within Engineering Education”

As engineering further develops into a global enterprise all regions of the world must produce competent engineers in sufficient numbers in order to provide for their well-being and representation in the global engineering market. However, not all regions and countries are equally represented or have sufficient numbers of engineers to match demand. Unequal representation manifests itself on a local level as well. Whether its tribal students in India, immigrants and women in Europe, or African-Americans in the United States certain demographics are not participating in engineering in the same numbers as their peers. Through reaching out to groups who normally are underrepresented, issues with demand, workforce diversity and other problems can be addressed. As a global network of engineering students passionate to affect local change SPEED is perfectly positioned to address this issue. The program will be structured to parallel and compliment the theme of the ASEE Global Colloquium, “Cultures, Markets and Regulations: Shaping Global Engineering Education”.


The 6th Global Student Forum will investigate and look to positively impact underrepresented populations within engineering education on a global and local level. The program will address such questions as:

Are there cultural implications to why certain populations do not pursue engineering or are they based on social hierarchy or perhaps the industry/markets in which a country can impact?

Does a lack of international standards prevent some engineers from operating on a global level?

Does level of participation reflect social status or a country's/region's development?

The benefits of a diverse engineering force have been illustrated, but what kind of new trends can we introduce into the existing conventional education systems in order to help increasing the numbers of those who are underrepresented.



Program Highlights:


Interactive Track Sessions
Engaging Our Future Engineers
Accreditation for Mobile Profession
Building Effective Partnerships
Inspirational Speakers
Intergenerational Presentations
Intergenerational Panel Discussion
Community Service Event
