John H. Beynon
GEDC Chair

The Global Engineering Deans Council (GEDC) was established in 2008 when twenty deans came together in Paris and signed the 'Paris Declaration'. GEDC has now grown to include over 500 deans from over 30 countries, 5 regional chapters, 12 corporate and other partners, with membership of all types growing quickly.

The Mission of the GEDC is to serve as a global network of engineering deans and to leverage the collective strengths of the deans for the advancement of engineering education, research and service to the global community. The four main arms of our strategic plan are: institutional leadership, curriculum leadership, policy leadership and accreditation leadership.

In December 2014, GEDC held a very successful conference in Dubai, UAE, as part of the World Engineering Education Forum.
