ASEE and global collaboration

Today's PIC IV Division Business meeting reminded me of the new ASEE supported INDO-US Collaboration for Engineering Education initiative.

American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE), along with academic and business leaders from leading US and Indian universities have launched an initiative to build US-India collaborations in order to make engineering education and research more relevant to the needs of the global society and to the aptitudes and aspirations ofnew generations of youth.

The 2008 Indo-US Engineering Faculty Leadership Institute commenced on the Infosys campus in Mysore, India on May 26, 2008. The goal of the partnership is to improve the quality and global relevance of engineering education in the U.S. and India.
