New Challenges in Engineering Education


General Chair at ICL “Interactive Computer aided Learning”

Never has the speed of development in the area of engineering been as accelerated as it is today, as we observe the enormous and driven growth of the area of engineering. Today’s tendencies require concerted new efforts in engineering education - or in other words, the importance of pedagogy in the field of engineering is growing enormously.

These changes strongly demand new didactic and pedagogic paradigms.

It is important to consider that humankind has never faced such a rapidly changing and dynamic global environment which requires so much of engineers as we are witnessing today. Never be- fore have the challenges in education and pedagogy been as challenging as today. Never has so much been demanded of engineers. Starting from actual tendencies in education the talk will highlight new requirements in enginee- ring education
