The traditional landmarks of the Sydney Harbour; including the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge are within easy reach of the conference venue as is the Blue Mountains (opens in a new window) World Heritage National Park.
The development in engineering and technology is advancing rapidly, which is making currency and delivery of existing curricula in engineering education challenging. The recent trends and advancements in engineering education were discussed by many leading educators from all around the world who gathered at iCEER 2016.The main objectives of the conference were to provide an opportunity of professional interaction amongst the educators, researchers, academics and students, and to showcase the latest developments and trends in engineering education.
Submitted papers featured a wide range of topics on current best practices in education of future Engineers as well as practices which should be adopted in the wake of recent research and growing demands due to the fast paced advances in technology applications.
