This conference is to provide a forum for educators, professional organizations and industry leaders from all over the world in general and the African Region in particular, to discuss and proffer solutions to common problems in engineering education.  Also, the Conference will critically examine approaches to teaching, learning and curriculum structures that would advance engineering education in resource-constrained environments like African nations.  It is anticipated that the conference will foster exchange of information, links, and collaboration between member nations on the one hand and the rest of the world on the other.

Currently, graduates from most African Universities may not be able to compete globally because of the inherent challenges in the training institutions. The major challenge confronting academics is to produce with limited resources global engineers that espouse attributes found in the notions of innovation, entrepreneurship and sustainability. The conference will deliberate on tangible ideas on how to produce with lean resources, engineers with necessary skills and orientation that can compete globally.

Workshop on “Innovative, Pedagogy and Engineering Academic Leadership Application in Africa” will be run back to back with the conference.


The scope of the conference will be broad, covering all aspects of engineering education, while the workshops will focus on development of academic staff and institutions.  The world has become a global community, which now provides more opportunities for collaboration.  The increased level of globalization of engineering education has provided academic institutions with new opportunities for cooperation in the international arena by building new and expanding existing, regional and global networks for engineering education. The conference contributions will focus on the following three sub-themes:

  • Engineering curriculum for facilitation of human resources development
  • Effective methods of training engineering personnel
  • Innovation in engineering education
  • Application of new technologies in engineering education
  • Education and industrial training e.g. Information Technology
  • Engineering education for sustainable development
  • Engineering education for employment in a globalizing economy
  • New paradigms in engineering education
  • Funding of engineering education
  • Techno-entrepreneurship in engineering education
  • Innovative pedagogy
  • Infrastructure and Technologies for Engineering Education
  • Role of regulatory bodies in the advancement of Engineering Education
  • Management of engineering education in tertiary institutions
  • Good governance and leadership
  • Industry requirements of engineering education
  • Social and philosophical aspects of engineering education and its impacts on the society
  • Academia/industry interaction programs
  • Role of Industry in Curriculum design
  • Internship facilities and opportunities

Industry involvement in the design and development of laboratories related to new technologies in engineering faculties

  • Transfer and sharing of experience in engineering education
  • Recognition of foreign qualifications
  • Accreditation systems for engineering programmes
  • International mobility of academic staff and students
  • Technology linkage between developed and developing countries
  • Regional collaboration in engineering manpower development
  • Impact of globalization on engineering education in developing countries:

It is anticipated that the proposed papers will present findings describing the effectiveness of new approaches to engineering education and industrial training.  The implementation of special programs, methods and modern approaches to engineering education and industrial training is of particular relevance to the conference.
