The 21st Century, with its novel Grand Challenges, the ever-complex systems and problems, is deemed as the age of collaboration. In preparing engineering graduates who are ready to face the current and future challenges, as demanded by stakeholders and accrediting bodies, there are numerous calls for academics and institutions of higher education to collaborate and synergize with various sectors in designing and organizing programs and curricula to meet the desired outcomes. In today’s complex world, success will only come with synergistic collaboration between the related parties.

Authors are cordially invited to submit papers to the upcoming World Engineering Education Forum, WEEF2017. All papers must represent original and unpublished work that is not currently under review. Each submitted paper must be original and unpublished work, not submitted for publication elsewhere. Each paper will be reviewed by experts in the relevant field ensuring the publication of top quality contributions. Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract (500-700 words) in areas of interest based on one of the following tracks:

  • Work-in-Progress in Engineering Education
    • Similar to Track 1, the extended abstract may not have the final research results, rather it opens up discussion for improving the research gap, theories, literature review and research methodology that provides significant contribution to engineering education.
  • Scholarly Experience Sharing in Engineering Education
    • The extended abstract should explain promising practice that is supported by research evidence, previous studies and theoretical framework in related teaching and learning methods in engineering education.
  • Innovative Practice Sharing in Engineering Education
    • The extended abstract should explain how the innovative practice in engineering education helps solve problems in the teaching and learning of engineering students.
  • Scholarly Research in Higher Education
    • The extended abstract should explain a rigorous and scholarly study that has significant contribution to the advancement of engineering education. The abstract should highlight research questions, theoretical framework, sound research methodology, research results and appropriate discussion.
  • Short Paper/Poster (Extended abstract – in any related area)
    • The extended abstract should explain a related area of research and the study that has been done. The content of the abstract should highlight the research design, method used, the finding and implication of the study.

All accepted papers will be published in proceedings with a Scopus Index.
