Peace Engineering

Prosperity, sustainability, social equity, diversity, culture of quality, innovation and entrepreneurship

The University of New Mexico School of Engineering, in collaboration with the Ibero-American Science and Education Consortium (ISTEC) and the Global Innovation Network for Entrepreneurship and Technology (GINET) will be hosting WEEF-GEDC 2018 Albuquerque in the United States of America between November 11 and 15, 2018. Students are encouraged to participate in the annual Global Student Forum and the Global Career Fair.

By focusing the development on key best practices, measuring the outcomes and focusing on impact, the world can be made into a better place, through the systemic ethical and entrepreneurial practice of Engineering. A transdisciplinary approach will emphasize innovation and creativity while stressing the importance of applying science and engineering to the solution of practical problems. Additionally, this advances social justice and sustainable social, economic, and environmental solutions globally.

New Mexico has a long tradition in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math (STEAM) education, R&D, and entrepreneurship. The state has been the birthplace of modern physics, the microcomputer, modern software, mathematical software (MATLAB), and many other high impact ventures. We are the home of the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History and several of the top research national laboratories, including Sandia National Lab¬oratories, Los Alamos National Laboratory, the Air Force Research Laboratory. Here you will find White Sands Missile Range, the Very Large Array (VLA) and Space Port America, “the world’s first purpose-built commer¬cial spaceport” currently serving Virgin Galactic and SpaceX, Up Aerospace and Google’s Project SkyBender.

More details soon be available on the conference website, which will be linked here once officially launched.
