Educating Engineers to Meet the Grand Challenges

A special workshop, Educating Engineers to Meet the Grand Challenges, was conducted at the National Academy of Engineering in Washington, D.C., with help from AAES' Lifelong Learning Working Group. The two-day forum, on April 30 and May 1, 2014, focused on how to best prepare future U.S. engineers to meet the National Academy of Engineering's Grand Challenges over the course of their careers. Also, implications were relayed to associations and others for educating practicing engineers and promoting lifelong learning.
