Future Perspectives of Engineering Education and the Impact of the Pandemic

The Canadian Academy of Engineering, in partnership with Western University, is holding a Symposium on “Future Perspectives of Engineering Education and the Impact of the Pandemic”, on June 15, 2021, as part of a Global Conference on Engineering Education – Challenges and Opportunities.

While the world is going through unprecedented changes and rapid developments, the method of engineering education has not seen much change.  We have seen the developments in AI, 5G and other technologies, the increasingly inter-disciplinary nature of the engineering profession, and the use of hybrid virtual collaboration tools.  There is an opportunity for more fundamental and revolutionary changes in Engineering Education, and the current pandemic seems to have provided the catalyst for faster changes.

The half-day Symposium will feature 3 panel discussions and presentations from 9 world experts on Engineering Education, to discuss the Future Perspectives of Engineering Education and the Impact of the Pandemic, in view of the Challenges and Opportunities of Engineering Education.
