Mission

The aims of IGIP (the International Society for Engineering Education) are

  • improving teaching methods in technical subjects
  • developing practice-oriented curricula that correspond to the needs of students and employers
  • use of media in teaching technical subjects
  • integrating languages and the humanities in engineering education
  • fostering management training for engineers
  • promoting environmental awareness
  • supporting the development of engineering education in developing countries

New competencies of educators are needed such as

  • evaluation management
  • development competencies
  • communication skills and teamwork
  • ethics and intercultural competencies.

IGIP cooperates intensively, on an international level, with other societies dedicated to engineering education.

International Engineering Educator ING-PAED IGIP

ING-PAED IGIP is a register which certifies a certain educational level for a teacher, trainer or instructor, which is determined by the IGIP curriculum. Any engineering educator who completes the curriculum at any accredited training centre for International Engineering Education, and whose education, training and professional experience meet the IGIP standards, may be listed in the professional register as an "International Engineering Educator ING-PAED IGIP".

The ING-PAED IGIP serves all technical teachers who

  • are engineers according to IGIP principles
  • have studied according to the IGIP curriculum at accredited institutes
  • have one year of teaching experience.

It is a minimum qualification profile for teachers and trainers in engineering education.

Both being listed in the register and having the title "ING-PAED IGIP" generally improve the position, role and responsibility of engineering educators in society.

IGIP Accreditation

IGIP accredits training centres for "International Engineering Educators", the teaching matter of which conforms to IGlP's curriculum for engineering pedagogy.

IGlP's activities

include

  • the annual "International Symposium for Engineering Education"
  • conferences, seminars and workshops organized nationally and internationally
  • IGlP Summer School
  • IGIP Knowledge Pool
  • the committees dealing with relevant topics of engineering pedagogy
