Canadian Engineering Education Challenge (CEEC)
- An initiative to develop a network of researchers and champions working together to enhance curricula and pedagogy in engineering education.
- To build a strong community of like-minded people who are open to experimentation, want to measure the results of their work, and want to learn from each other.
- To leverage resources across the country through collaborations to accelerate our efforts and deepen their impact.

CEEC Project Buildathon
December 7th 2018, at the University of Toronto
- The intent is to align common interests and existing directions between people across different institutions to collaborate on tangible projects where the outcomes benefit everyone involved.
- The key is to build projects around what people are already working on, as most people are too busy to take on additional tasks.
- We are hoping to have 3 – 5 projects emerge from this event, and with additional support from the CEEC, develop a network of people working together to tackle problems that are systemic across the Canadian Engineering Education landscape.
- To provide some context for these projects, the overarching theme will be “What should the future of engineering curriculum and different teaching approaches look like in Canada?”.
- The event will resemble a typical ‘hackathon’ event, beginning with a session of Project Proposals, then shifting to an ‘Unconference’ style of an energized room simultaneously working on several projects.
- For more details, see the original Project Overview document
- Event registration is now OPEN!
This initiative is funded through support from the following institutions:
The Canadian Engineering Education Challenge is an initiative formed through the Engineering Change Lab. The Engineering Change Lab is a collaborative platform for individuals and organizations from across the engineering community to share perspectives, deepen understanding, and take action to address systemic challenges holding back the profession’s full potential. A sub-group within the lab focused on post-secondary education evolved into the CEEC initiative with funding support from the National Council of Deans of Engineering and Applied Science (NCDEAS), and the hiring of the National Coordinator.
