In the last two decades we have seen our world grow increasingly interconnected. Engineering as a profession has changed in the face of globalization. Engineering education likewise has adopted a more international character. In this session we explore how engineering and society interact on a global scale and how we teach our students to cope and thrive in this environment.
This session should also provide a forum to discuss the LEES sponsored Distinguished Lecture by Carl Mitcham on “Learning from China”.
