By F. William Stephenson (auth.), D. Weichert, B. Rauhut, R. Schmidt (eds.)

Upspeeding technological evolution and globalisation characterise today’s and destiny lives of engineers. it's important for all associations excited by engineering schooling to maintain velocity and to count on destiny wishes. The herein provided number of papers effects from the Workshop on international Engineering schooling (GEE’3) which happened at Aachen collage of know-how, 18 – 20 October 2000. during this assembly greater than one hundred fifty experts from 25 international locations mentioned the subject “Educating the Engineer for the Century”. Which position to characteristic to non-technical skills? the right way to combine moral points in schooling? can we need to outline foreign criteria in schooling? What approximately quality controls? what's the power of recent media for wisdom move? the best way to organise lifelong studying for engineers? - those are a few of the questions mentioned between representatives of industries, academic associations, politicians and participants in this assembly. in keeping with the periods of the workshop, the booklet is subdivided into chapters masking the components “Role of the worldwide Engineer in assembly the demanding situations of Society within the Century”, ”Internationality and Interdisciplinarity”, “Engineering schooling in rising Economies”, “European Bachelor and grasp Programmes”, “Developing own abilities to be an international Engineer”. 3 chapters take care of winning perform in engineering schooling protecting the themes “Programmes, Curricula and Evaluation”, “Educational Concepts”, and “University-Industry Partnership, layout Projects”.

They provide a multitude of individual solutions, which differ from country to country and which vary considerably in quality and orientation even within the individual countries. Here too, both practical, career-specific courses and scientific, general courses are offered. In other words, there are differences between university degrees, although there is no formal, institutionalised differentiation between education and training profiles such as the distinction in Germany between FH (Technical College) and TH (Institute of Technology).

It was another key event in the entire development phase as it resulted in a major boost in mutual trust. Both sides could feel that their partners had a genuine interest and a strong commitment to this project. Today, it is still UNITECH’s philosophy to foster live interaction among all UNITECH partners. Although it is a time-consuming and costly way of running such a network, it is probably the only way to establish the level of trust necessary for developments to go beyond a sponsoring partnership.
