ABOUT AEDS 2019
The National Taiwan University is honored to host the 2019 Asian
Engineering Deans Summit (AEDS) on May 29-31, 2019 at Taipei.
The event will be the ninth installment of AEDS so far,
following the previous wonderful summits in Singapore (2011),
Hong Kong (2012), Seoul (2013), Beijing (2014), Singapore (2015),
Hangzhou (2016), Sydney (2017), and Tokyo (2018). We look forward
to welcoming our distinguished colleagues to Taipei this May.
Asian Higher Education in general and Engineering Schools in
particular are experiencing historical prosperity and growth opportunities.
Along with these wonderful and positive landscape, comes with numerous new
challenges in an accelerating changing world. The AEDS is a platform to discuss
these important issues related to engineering higher education.
The theme of the summit will be “Global Education and Innovative Technology.”
Education is increasingly global in term of students and faculty,
and in fact many premier universities do make extra effort of creating campuses
that are global in every respect. Higher education has long been given the task
of educating students that are innovative. There is no better way of teaching
students to be innovative by immersing students in an innovative campus.
Topics to be covered in this summit include:
• Global education program and student mobility
• AI based educational technology
• Green technology and sustainable environment
• Innovative technology and entrepreneurship
• International research center with industrial collaboration
• Recruitment of international students and/or female students
