Preliminary programme

Furthermore, we are delighted to announce that in addition to ISBN, we will include a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) for each accepted paper at this year’s conference. We hope that you appreciate this important step forward, we believe having a DOI is an excellent advantage for researchers.

“Towards a new future in engineering education”

We are moving fast towards new scenarios in engineering education. Not only is technology strongly influencing education, human and social factors are also at the core of essential ways of shaping a new future for universities.

How can we shape the future of learning and teaching?

We can have a say, as we have comprehensive experience in all relevant elements that influence learning. We share our passion for education. We have the will to accompany teachers and new academics on the road to engineering education. We have all the SEFI Special Interest Groups working hard on key topics.

Let us share our vision for the future and the new scenarios that open up and bring together the transformative capacity of universities and teachers.

The focus of the conference also explores the new scenarios that European alliances of tech universities open up for the future of engineering education.

The UPC and its Institute of Education Sciences have just celebrated 50 years in teaching and education. Therefore, at this 50th SEFI annual conference, the SEFI and the UPC are pleased to invite everyone to participate.
