AAEE Conference 2018
Kōrihi ngā manu tangi o tea ta,
E koekoe tui, e ketekete te kākā. E kūkū te kereru
E mōteateatea ana te ngākau
Ahakoa ngä mano huri atu ki te hämarietanga
mähue mai ki ahau kötahi mano, e rima rau, e rima tekau, tekau mä rua,
koia kei roto ko te Atua tö tätou piringa ka puta ka ora.
Kia tau hoki ngä manaakitanga a te runga rawa
ki runga i a Kingi Tuheitia.
Ki ngä mate haere koutou,
Haere ki Te Pou-tü-tanga-nui-o-Pipiri
Te urunga te taka te moenga te whakaarahia
Moe mai koutou i roto i te Ariki
E ngā mana, e ngā reo, e ngā karangrangatanga maha o te motu
Tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou katoa.
We are pleased to announce the 29th Australasian Association of Engineering Education (AAEE) annual international conference will be held in Hamilton, New Zealand from 9 -12 December 2018.
AAEE is the premier engineering education conference for the southern hemisphere and involves a gathering of 250-300 tertiary engineering educators and stakeholders to discuss recent research, issues and trends in educating the current generation of engineers. Primarily held in Australia, the last time this conference was in New Zealand was in 2014. This year AAEE is co-hosted by the University of Waikato and the Waikato Institute of Technology (Wintec).
The Australasian tertiary engineering education sector, as a provider of new engineers to the engineering industry, has to meet the needs of industry and engineering accreditation panels, while also delivering content that utilises the latest education techniques and attractive to students.
To avoid disconnect between engineering academia and industry, it is vital we bring all stakeholders together to discuss engineering education needs and delivery.
Themes for this years’ conference are:
- Beyond the Qualification – future-proofing engineering education for a diverse workforce
- Beyond Tolerance – educational practices that embrace diversity
- Beyond the Classroom – tailoring engineering and STEM education to meet the needs of all stakeholders.
As attendee, you will have the opportunity to meet with tertiary educators, contribute to the ongoing discussion in engineering education while enabling us to better provide for your engineering graduate needs.
We invite you to Hamilton to join us for this event.
Professor Janis Swan, The University of Waikato and Dr Trudy Harris, Wintec
