Educating Engineers to Meet the Grand Challenges

The National Academy of Engineering will host a workshop to help prepare engineering students to address Grand Challenges.

On April 30-May 1, 2014, the National Academy of Engineering in Washington, DC, will host “Educating Engineers to Meet the Grand Challenges."

This workshop will bring together leaders from academia, associations, startup communities, learning through service organizations, and industry to identify best practices for preparing students to address Grand Challenges. The intended result will be a consortium of engineering schools committed to shared practices for providing their students/members with an engineering education that includes elements such as learning through service, global perspectives, practical applications, entrepreneurship, and aspects of policy and human behavior.

This event is organized by the National Academy of Engineering, Epicenter, Engineers Without Borders USA (EWB-USA), Engineering Projects in Community Service (EPICS), American Association of Engineering Societies (AAES), and the NAE Grand Challenge Scholars Program.
