This year, our theme is Engineering at the Intersections of Art, Design and Technology. We invite colleagues (faculty, researchers, graduate students, post-docs, and undergraduates) to join us in sharing their work and ideas about how contexts (or the lack of them) impact all aspects of engineering education.

Please join us for 2020 conference. We welcome all those who are interested, even if your work falls outside of this year’s theme.

  1. Topics should be connected to engineering education and/or engineering technology. They can be related directly to the conference theme or contribute to engineering education generally.
  2. Presentations (for Papers and Extended Abstracts) will be organized into sessions around the categories below. Papers will be reviewed for publication on the ASEE section and ASEE national websites. Extended Abstracts and Student Posters will be published on the ASEE St. Lawrence website only.
  3. Conference registration of at least one author is required to present any paper, extended abstract, or student poster.
