EDUCATING ENGINEERS FOR A GLOBAL WORLD
For many years, the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) and others have been studying the role of the engineer and engineering education in the 21<SUP>st</SUP> century. More specifically, the organization has looked at changes needed to effectively address these evolving roles; their recommendations are included in a definitive report titled <I>Transforming Engineering through Educational Scholarship</I>. As the practice of engineering becomes increasingly global, ASEE is strengthening its connections to the worldwide engineering education community. Of particular note is ASEE' s leadership in the development of the International Federation of Engineering Education Societies (IFEES). ASEE has also been working with other engineering education societies to sponsor a series of global colloquia on engineering education in a variety of countries. The engineering profession is critical to economic development, quality of life, and security of all countries. The ASEE must work with other engineering organizations to advance the image of engineering and to draw more people into the profession.
