Welcome from the Chair!
With a name like the “Global Engineering Deans Council,” you expect bold aspirations and actions in the service of humankind. Our young organization (8 years young) now comprises over 500 deans from all continents with significant regional activity. We have partnered with a few National Academies of Engineering, the World Bank, and others to bring the message and the value of the engineering enterprise to developed and developing countries alike.
Our Mission is to serve as the global network of engineering deans mobilized to advance engineering education, research, and service to the global community. Our strategic plan is focused on institutional leadership formation, curriculum leadership, corporate and public engagement, and accreditation leadership.
