“Varietas delectat… Complexity is the new normality”
Industry 4.0 and Diversity in Engineering Education


The focus of SEFI conferences is Engineering Education (EE) and the Annual Conference 2019 will be dedicated to the complex nature of today’s engineering education. Roles and expectations for universities keep on changing in the 21st century whilst the mission of science, engineering and higher education remains substantial. Stakeholders expect academia to better promote innovation, reform the knowledge economy, and manage vastly altered student populations.

Submission formats

You may submit an abstract in ConfTool for the following submission types
  • Concept paper: Full papers, which present scholarly work within the field of Engineering Education. Author(s) may submit studies of practice and work-in-progress projects.
  • Research paper: Full papers, which follow the standards for good research practice in Engineering Education Research (EER). Author(s) may submit original studies and research projects within EER.
  • Workshop (90 min): In-depth training or learning experiences. Participants are asked to pre-register for a workshop, which means workshops must offer participants a recognisable ‘product’ that provides them with enhanced knowledge and skills, documents and information. The learning outcomes and the interactivity component of the workshop must be clearly defined. A typical workshop duration is 90 minutes.
