Call for Abstracts

The Te Whare Wānanga o Waitaha | University of Canterbury, with the support of Ara Institute of Canterbury (Ara), are proud to host the 35th Australasian Association for Engineering Education Annual Conference (AAEE 2024).

The title of the conference is “The Engineer and The World”, reflects the International Engineering Alliance’s recognition of the need for future engineers to advance the achievement and sustainment of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). AAEE 2024 will catalyse and inform future innovation and research on integrating more sustainability into engineering education.

Nau mai haere mai ki Ōtautahi! We look forward to welcoming you in Christchurch!

Authors in all areas of engineering education were invited to submit abstracts for a conference paper, with a particular emphasis on the following topics:

  • Innovative pedagogy
  • Learner perspectives
  • Graduate outcomes
  • Community and industry needs

Authors were encouraged to identify alignment with the UN SDGs.

Full papers may still be submitted without an associated abstract submission, however authors were encouraged to submit an abstract to receive feedback on their work.

The delivery mode is face to face only, and all presenters/facilitators are expected to register for the full conference (no day registrations). Each paper must have at least one registered author.
