4th International Symposium
of Engineering Education
19 - 20 July 2012

ISEE 2012
Educating the Engineers of Tomorrow


Tὰ πάντα ρεῖ καὶ οὐδὲν μένει - "Everything flows and nothing remains the same."  Heraclitus


We live in an exciting world, a world of flux where everything changes at an increasingly rapid rate.  However, the rapid rates of technological change experienced can be overwhelming for the uninformed member of the public; a public that not only expects the current standard of living achieved by Western societies to become more widespread without adversely affecting our environment, but a public that also expects these improvements to their life styles and well being to continue ad infinitum; these ‘gifts of the engineer’ are welcome but they are taken for granted.  

Education is a complex multifaceted activity and as such it must be approached in a holistic way as far as possible. For this reason, the aim of this symposium, organised by our community of educators in the field of engineering, is to bring together both practitioners and students to discuss the wider possible spectrum of experiences, practices and knowledge transfer, in order to drive to new heights the continuous spiral of accumulated engineering educational improvement.   These are some of the themes and issues ISEE2012 would like to address, but the list is not exhaustive and the boundaries are flexible!
