This track aims enhancing discussion around Engineering Education especially concerned with young professionals.

Engineering Education must not only focus on educational context but also on professional aspects where senior students can engage in tasks close to those of young professionals. The perspective from these two worlds is often quite different. The point of view of academics is the most acknowledged, but viewpoints from young engineers and/or senior students, tutors and senior engineers who directly work with young professionals should be more documented. The sharing of successful practices among and between these communities is essential to gradually improve the success of young engineers.

It is intended to address problems like:

  • How may teachers improve the development of key professional competences in engineering students?
  • How can the gap between academic and professional worlds be minimized?
  • Which contributions can professional institutions provide for a better linkage with the academic structures to smooth transitions?
  • How can technology improve this interrelation?
  • Are these concerns multicultural?

Besides that, following the implementation of the Bologna declaration, several countries undertook serious modifications in their engineering curricula. The question is how did these modifications influence the relationship between these two worlds?
