The Conference

Under the joint patronage of the Faculty of Architecture and Design at Slovak University of Technology, Bratislava, Slovakia, in collaboration with the Faculty of Architecture at Cracow University of Technology, Kraków, Poland; the Faculty of Architecture at Gdańsk University of Technology, Gdańsk, Poland; the Faculty of Architecture at Wrocław University of Science and Technology, Wrocław, Poland; and the World Institute for Engineering and Technology Education (WIETE), these institutions organise jointly the 2021 Conference on Engineering and Architecture Design Education (EADE-2021) to take place at Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava, Bratislava, Slovakia, between 6 and 9 September 2021.

At this stage, the Commonwealth Science and Technology Academy for Research (C-STAR), Chennai, India, a Partner Institution of the WIETE, is the Conference Co-sponsor. It is anticipated that the number of Co-sponsors and Support Organisations will increase as several other institutions consider becoming involved in this endeavour.

This 2021 Conference on Engineering and Architecture Design Education (EADE-2021) follows the EADE-2020 held in Gdansk, Poland, over the Internet, due to the Covid-19 pandemic; the successful EADE-2019 held in Kraków, Poland; and the EADE-2018, held in Bratislava, Slovakia, in 2018; and builds on the series of extremely successful international conferences held in the past by the UICEE and WIETE, such as the World Conference on Technology and Engineering Education (Kraków 2010, Ljubljana 2011, Athens 2014 and Bratislava 2015); the World Conference on Engineering Education (Sydney 1989, Portsmouth 1992, Minneapolis-St. Paul 1995); the East-West Congress on Engineering Education (Kraków 1991, Łódź 1993, Gdynia 1996) and, then, the Global Congress on Engineering Education (Kraków 1998, Wismar 2000, Glasgow 2002, Bangkok 2004 and New York 2006), to name a few. Based on such previous extensive experience, the present Conference is a continuation of the international effort of sharing and exchanging ideas, experiences and achievements within the international community of technology and engineering, as well as engineering and architecture educators in this case.

Areas of Interest

It is envisaged that the Conference will provide the participants with the opportunity to interact on all aspects of engineering and architecture design education, and such interactions as workshops, team work, panel debates, group discussions, individual presentations, and others, will be led and aided by several eminent international keynote speakers, leaders of the specific areas of interest. It is envisaged that a special post-conference workshop for academic staff and higher degree students will be held in conjunction with the Conference at the same venue.

In accordance with the Conference aims and objectives, the following general areas of interest were identified for discussion:

  • International collaboration between academic and industrial organisations in engineering and architecture design education
  • Individual country’s achievements in engineering and architecture design education, and relevant case studies
  • Technological advancements and transfer across the world, and the participation of developing countries in this process
  • The impact on the future supply of qualified personnel for industry, commerce and services
  • The role and importance of engineering and architecture design education in sustainability and environmental protection
  • The interaction between academia and industry for the advancement of engineering and architecture design education
  • Alternative methods of education and training, and the promotion of continuing education of engineers and architects
  • Quality assurance, accreditation systems, ranking of academic institutions and the recognition of foreign qualifications
  • The role, nature and importance of research and development in engineering and architecture design education

Specific Topics

Suggested specific topics for the Conference include, but are not restricted to, the following:

  • curriculum design, implementation and evaluation;
  • the nature of cognitive processes, heuristics and creative thought;
  • the impact of specific new technologies on effective education and training;
  • problem- and project-based education and training;
  • community attitudes towards engineering and architecture design education;
  • the importance of academia/industry co-operation in engineering and architecture design education;
  • advanced, innovative and alternative methods and programmes of education and training;
  • the promotion of continuing and further education of engineers and architects;
  • work-based learning and the involvement of employers;
  • new technologies and advancements in the education and training process;
  • management and administration in engineering and architecture design education;
  • effective information transfer in engineering and architecture design education;
  • teaching instructions, laboratory procedures, design studios and equipment devised, developed and applied in teaching practice;
  • innovative design strategies and methodologies;
  • specific case studies.

It is anticipated that Conference papers will cover a wide and diverse range of topics, issues and ideas concerning contemporary problems and challenges in engineering and architecture design education that need to be identified, addressed and discussed. The coverage of specific topics should include, and make references to, professional, pedagogical and methodological matters, innovation and talent cultivation, results of unique educational research and development, as well as practical experiences gained in education practice.

Call for Papers and Contributions

A call is made for research papers and other relevant contributions, such as posters and workshops, as well as other innovative activities. It is expected that the proposed Conference contributions will address the topics mentioned above and/or other topics and contributions relevant to the Conference aims and objectives.

Prospective authors should submit an abstract of 250-350 words, in English, outlining the aims, content and conclusions of their papers and other contributions. The abstract should include the title of the paper, authors’ names, affiliations, mailing addresses, e-mail address, telephone and fax numbers. Authors’ contributions (in form of research articles) will be printed after the Conference, with soft editing, language correction and formatting. The authors must present their papers or carry out intended activities personally, as their contributions will not be included in the Conference publication unless delivered.

Invited Special Sessions

A number of well-known local and international experts will be invited to address the Conference on key issues of engineering and technology education. Sessions will be structured to encourage useful discussion and it is intended that such discussion will be summarised towards the end of the Conference.

Proposals for the arrangement of invited sessions are welcome. These sessions are expected to address topical issues on engineering and technology education. Each proposal should include the names and affiliations of authors, as well as the abstracts of their papers. Proposals are also invited for the organisation of panel discussion sessions. Each proposal should include the names and brief résumés of the panellists. There is also room for innovative formats, permitting flexible arrangements for poster sessions, group discussions and interaction, demonstrations, etc. Any institution or individual interested in conducting such an activity should contact the Conference Chairman.

Conference Publication

It is envisaged that high quality conference papers will be published in the World Transactions on Engineering and Technology Education (WTE&TE) or the Global Journal of Engineering Education (GJEE) after the Conference, subject to positive referees’ reports, satisfactory editorial assessment and the presentation at the Conference. An individual participant can only propose one research paper contribution to the Conference.

Authors of the papers accepted to be published in the WIETE journals, when notified, will pay the paper publication fee of $A800 directly to the WIETE account.
