Imagine if, guided by educators and mentors who understand emerging technologies, every student was prepared and excited to address challenges/problems by applying science and math concepts, using an engineering approach. What would that look like?
ECL-USA is collaborating with other engineering organizations to examine how the Engineering Community can increase its effectiveness in support of K-12 STEM education.
Future of Consulting Engineering
Imagine that engineering firms are thriving in the future. What would that look like? ECL-USA Summit 12, The Engineering Firm of the Future (2030) explored several aspects of this question (Summit 12 Report).
New Model for Engineering Licensure
If we had to do it all again, what would it look like? ECL-USA Summit 10, Licensure Models for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, offered a look at what is needed (Summit 10 Report).
As follow-up to Summit 10, ECL-USA is leading a task force that is exploring prototype models of a future licensure system that fits both the needs of present practice and the demands and dynamics presented by emerging technologies.
Mapping Technological Driving Forces Impacting the Engineering Community
Imagine that engineers lead the embrace and acceptance of integrated technologies to drive business. What would that look like? This group will be exploring disruptive technologies that might drive new forms of delivering the engineering community’s work and transform (or diminish) traditional business models and models of practice.
ECL-USA’s Summits 14 and 15 will explore two aspects of the technological driving forces impacting the Engineering Community (Summit 14 & 15 Overview).
Engineers and Public Policy
Imagine if engineers used their knowledge and skills to have a positive impact on society through engagement in public policy. What would that look like? Session 4 of our 2020 Engineering Ideas Institute explored the leadership aspects of public policy involvement (2020 EII Session 4 Report).
