“Engineering Education for Sustainable Development and Social Inclusion”

Nowadays development is only viable when it is produced in a sustainable way. At the same time it is necessary to solve marginalized sectors needs and resource distribution while promoting social inclusion. Engineering, particularly engineering education has a fundamental role in achieving these goals. It is important to include these issues not only in the engineering courses syllabus but increasing the number and diversity of students.

This forum, which will take place for the first time ever in Argentina, will bring together the biggest and most important international organizations devoted to engineering education. It is our hope that as discussions proceed we will be able to identify policies and strategies that contribute to sustainable development and social inclusion in education.
