Addressing global challenges requires complex problem-solving, systems thinking, and interdisciplinary collaboration.

How can we transform engineering education so that students develop these important skills?


What learnings can be shared by higher education institutions that have embarked on educational transformation processes?


What do other stakeholders in higher education, industry, and society, have to say about these efforts?

These, and other, questions will be discussed in a highly-interactive, in-person format at the 9th International Research Symposium on Problem-Based Learning (IRSPBL23) under the theme Transforming Engineering Education.

PRESENT AT IRSPBL23 UNDER THE THEME TRANSFORMING ENGINEERING EDUCATION
