Our Mission

We want to grow a critical mass engaged in engineering and science education as well as leadership that is committed to reimaging engineers and scientists of tomorrow

Our Theme

Transforming Learners to Transform Our World is the  theme for the CEEA-ACEG Conference held at the Lassonde School of Engineering in 2022. Our goal throughout the CEEA-ACEG conference is to create a culture that hums with curiosity, welcomes ambiguity and is always hungry for learning. We embrace taking risks and making change and through the CEEA-ACEG conference want to grow a critical mass engaged in engineering and science education and leadership that is committed to reimaging engineers and scientists of tomorrow – ‘Our Learners’.

Why This Matters

Our Learners will play a crucial role in shaping the future and have a greater responsibility to address the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and thereby tackle the world’s ‘Wicked’ problems. How do we ensure that we can engage our Learners to solve relevant, complex and socially impacted problems? How do we bring together people who are not afraid to push, bend, twist and break apart the boundaries of traditional engineering practice? Through a collaboratorium focused conference program, we want to co-create new models for Transforming Learners to Transform Our World. Our proposed theme and program for the conference will focus on imagining an engineer that cannot yet be imagined, to meet the problems of tomorrow that are yet to be conceived.
