WEEF 2017

The World Engineering Education Forum (WEEF) and Global Students Forum (GSF) 2017 are important events among the global engineering community. In the advent of the 4th Industrial Revolution ushered by the emerging technologies, with its novel Grand Challenges, complex systems and problems, is deemed as the age of collaboration. To prepare graduates who are ready to face the current and future challenges yet to be defined, 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, the era of 4th Industrial Revolution success will only come with synergistic collaboration between various multi-disciplinary parties. WEEF 2017 & GSF 2017 brings together educators and leaders, industry, governmental organizations and NGOs to form fruitful and long-term collaboration, as well as to be involved with the larger international engineering education community. Workshops and plenary sessions on Industrie 4.0 and related matters will be discussed by experts from across the globe such as Professor Emeritus Tan Sri Dr Zakri Abdul Hamid, Professor Dr. Anette Kolmos, Dr. Martin Dougiamas, Dr. Michael Milligan, Mr. Xavier Fouger, Dr. Norman Fortenberry, Mr. Paul Gilbert, Dr. Gatot Hari Priowirjanto, Professor Dr. Shahbaz Khan and Datuk Ir.
