On May 11-12, 2023, faculty members from American International University-Bangladesh (AIUB) attended the “International Symposium on Quality Assurance in Engineering Education through Accreditation – III” organized by the Board of Accreditation for Engineering & Technical Education (BAETE) under The Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh (IEB).
The symposium focused on discussing how the engineering education curriculum embraces the challenges of SDG goals, how to better address the issues and how to fill the gaps. International Engineering Alliance has introduced new graduate attributes keeping the attainment of professional competencies as the far-reaching vision. Therefore, the accreditation system will also see a departure in the coming era. All of these were discussed in depth in the contexts of past, present, and future scenarios to achieve a smoother transition, which is necessary for making progress toward our national and global goals.
