The inception of the HEQSF brought the opportunity to rethink and redesign higher education. In the particular case of Engineering, the Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA), along with partners in the International Engineering Alliance (IEA) emphasize the importance of Graduate Attributes and Professional Competencies. Furthermore, the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are crucial additional factors to include as we teach our students. Embedding, assessing and imparting these attributes and goals requires regular rethinking, redesign and updating of the engineering curricula.
This initiative specifically focuses on showcasing curriculum strategies that exist across SA HEI in addition to offering workshops and activities for different institutions to participate in sessions where innovative integrated curriculum frameworks are considered.
We invite any participant involved in education of engineers to participate in these sessions and activities. The opportunity exists here to build forth from the Master class series (http://www.eeescep.uct.ac.za/) offered 2017-2019 by expanding the network of engineering educators and empowering them to initiate and facilitate institutional change.
We invite anyone involved in the education of engineers to participate in an exciting collaboration between a number of academic institutions in South Africa and the United Kingdom. Please share your information here
