建立战略国际伙伴关系:第十八届国际工程教育年会

今年的国际工程教育座谈会共有150多人参加,吸引了有史以来人数最多的参加者,还有许多工程教育领域的首次参加者和资深人士。由IIE和DAAD在纽约市组织的为期两天的座谈会汇集了100多所大学的代表,其中包括25多个外国机构,这些大学目前正在培训下一代全球工程师,以及非政府组织和政府领导人,以研究相关议题。TED接受工程教育并为工程人员准备学生。

今年的座谈会&ld.;BuildingInternationalStrategicPartnership&rd.;的主题允许与会者集中讨论几个重要主题,包括:行业的作用,具体探讨行业利益如何与学术和研究利益相匹配;局域网的作用。在考虑工科学生的国际机会时,要用标准来衡量国际工程项目的成功与否以及衡量一个项目规模所需的条件,还要用标准来定义一个具有全球竞争力的工程师。我们听取了该领域的专家关于如何发展新的伙伴关系、在现有伙伴关系的基础上发展以及如何利用这些伙伴关系来扩大工科学生的机会的意见。

DRA发表的主题演讲。墨西哥外交部技术和科学合作司司长玛莎·纳瓦罗强调指出,墨西哥与其他国家正在不同层次上创造新的机会和伙伴关系,包括允许墨西哥学生参加的短期项目给美国带来长期的双民族机遇。

Participants came to the colloquium with different goals and motivations, some just getting started on developing programs at their universities, some looking to grow their program portfolio, and others looking for concrete benchmarking and assessment tools.

The event featured speakers who spoke to how the field of engineering is at the forefront of international education with more U.S. engineering students having an international experience than ever before due to programs such as Fulbright, Whitaker, RISE, and other funding opportunities. Consortium-based models were also discussed by representatives of the German Universities of Applied Sciences (UAS7), as a way to provide engineering students with more options abroad. The UAS7 consortium and IIE’s Global Engineering Education Exchange (Global E3) consortium are two examples on how to facilitate the exchange of US and international engineering students.

我们多次听到的两个问题是:1)理工科学生应该如何向未来的雇主最好地表达他们在国外的学习或国际经验?2)国际经验如何才能补充工程师需要具备的技术技能?这两个问题在会议期间讨论得很长,主要集中在德国的双重技能模式上。Speakers noted that the concept of “dual training” where trainees split their days between classroom instruction at a vocational school and on-the-job time at a company (2-4 years, depending on the sector) is a model that has proven to work in Germany and gaining popularity in the UniteD状态。

Thank you to all the attendees, speakers, sponsors for your contributions, sharing best practices and being part of what was a rich dialogue over the two-day event. As we look forward next year’s Colloquium, we encourage all of you to take the information and ideas generated from the 2015 event, share it with your colleagues at your institutions, and start thinking about what you want to accomplish for your programs between now and Newport.
