The Passing of Duncan Fraser


It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Professor Duncan Fraser, our good friend and colleague; professor at the University of Cape Town, Secretary General of the African Engineering Education Association (AEEA), and President-Elect of IFEES. Duncan passed away on July 19th, 2014, surrounded by family.

For those of us who had the privilege of knowing and working with Duncan, we knew of his deep faith, his passion for people and for engineering education. The impact of his work and dedication reached not only the surrounding region, but all across the world. The IFEES and GEDC community is working on a more detailed piece about Duncan’s life and contributions globally.
