CEEA/ACEG 2010 INAUGURAL CONFERENCE
Held June 7-9, 2010
Queen’s University Kingston, ON, Canada
The Canadian Engineering Education Association (CEEA) is a new organization whose mission is to “enhance the competence and relevance of graduates from Canadian Engineering schools through continuous improvement in engineering education and design education.” This first annual CEEA conference integrated and grew on the previous efforts of the Canadian Design Engineering Network (CDEN) and the Canadian Congress on Engineering Education (C2E2).
We were pleased to have attendees from the broad community of engineering educators to join us. It was a highly successful conference and we received a great deal of positive feedback. Please see our 2010 Conference Highlights page for images and links to the proceedings.
The inaugural conference took place on beautiful and historic Queen’s University Campus in Kingston, Ontario, Canada
