Title: Globalization of Engineering Education: Our Experiences
Date: 12th August 2016 (Friday)
Time: 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm
Venue: N107, UTAR Kampar Campus, Perak
Speaker: Prof. Dr. Hsueh-Ming Hang, NCTU
Modern engineering training must be international. There are several aspects in this statement. First, the modern engineering knowledge, skills and disciplines are universal. Second, the world is flat. The industry and market are facing global competition so are the engineers who are the key element of industry. Third, international collaborations in science and technology inspire innovation. Forth, international explore experiences enhance the mobility of students and faculty members. Therefore, the top universities have international partnership, overseas branch campus, and exchange student/faculty programs.
In this talk, we start with the statistics of the international students and scholars enrollment in USA. Then, we describe the international experiences of the Electrical and Computer Engineering College at NCTU. We will cover the exchange student and dual degree programs, the international graduate student degree program, the entrepreneurship program, massive open online course, and professional society participation. This talk should be two-way communication. We hope we can exchange the globalization concepts and experiences with audience. Our goal is “Educating Engineers as Global Citizens”.
