A Multi-Stakeholder, Multi-National Partnership to Enhance Engineering Education in China
Keyword(s): China; engineering education; curriculum innovation
Abstract: Engineering education renovation is one of China's major initiatives in support of the country's economic and innovation development. The challenges poised to engineering schools are enormous: from seeking international accreditation, engaging in curriculum innovation and enhancing the learning experience to internationalization of engineering education and mandatory industry experience for engineering faculty. With the support and contribution of Mathworks and Hewlett Packard, the Chinese Society for Engineering Education and Tsinghua University (the Center for Engineering Education and the Institute of Education) have partnered for the last two years with the International Institute for Developing Engineering Academics (IIDEA) to provide leadership and capacity building to hundreds of engineering professors, deans and leaders through workshops and discussions in various engineering education areas. The members of this panel will share the motivation, outcomes, experiences and future plans that this unique multi- stakeholder, multinational partnership is engaged with to catalyze change.
