Following the SEFI conference, we would like to invite you to join our Special Interest Groups. You will find the entire list and their activities on this page. Some of the groups already shared their post-conference plans.
SUSTAINABILITY AND ENGINEERING EDUCATION
The SIG plans to benchmark the situation of Engineering Education in Sustainability in each institutional member of SEFI and organize a workshop to design a training course for Engineering Education in Sustainability teaching.
In the upcoming months, the group will write a paper for the European Journal of Engineering Education about capacity building based on the recent SEFI conference paper; Broadcast a podcast; and Organize a SEFI@work webinar.
MATHEMATICS IN ENGINEERING EDUCATION
The group´s main objectives are to sustain the accumulative process of gathering published materials and reports related to all identified important topics in Mathematical Education of Engineers for building up a sound body of knowledge in this field. Our next seminar will be in June in Tampere, Finland.
The next steering committee meeting will be in Prague on 02-03 of December. Proposals of joint work and SIG development are very welcome (e-mails should be sent to email@example.com).
In January we will start a series of online 1hour GETOn meetings where researchers may present their work in progress and exchange ideas with the community.
PHYSICS IN ENGINEERING EDUCATION
The main activity of the SIG of physics is the biannual Physics Teaching in Engineering Education (PTEE) conference. The next conference will be the PTEE2024 in Rosenheim, Germany. The conference dates are May 15th – 17th 2024. The local organizer will be the Technische Hochschule Rosenheim. For more information, follow the SEFI web pages and sefiphysics.be.
ATTRACTIVENESS OF ENGINEERING EDUCATION
The ideology of the SIG is based on spreading the information that Engineering plays an essential role when solving the global challenges of climate change, pollution, digitalisation, transportation etc. We especially need to attract diverse people to engineering to create bridges between the different disciplines and jointly build the sustainable industry 5.0.
The successful cooperation with the SIG on Continuing Engineering Education will continue in the upcoming year.
