We are extremely pleased to welcome you to Cape Town, South Africa, for the 2020 World Engineering Education Forum and The Global Engineering Deans Council (WEEF&GEDC) to be held from 15 to 20 November 2020 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC). We invite industry supporters to make the most of this valuable opportunity to collaborate with the International Federation of Engineering Education Societies (IFEES) and its members by exhibiting at and sponsoring the congress.

Each year, IFEES holds the World Engineering Education Forum in different locations around the world. On even years, the conference is jointly convened with the Global Engineering Deans Council Conference. This is the largest global gathering in Engineering education and includes participation from a large number of stakeholders – Engineering educators, leaders, students, industry, governmental organisations, non-governmental organisations, among others – who share and build fruitful and long-term collaborations during the event.

The South African Society for Engineering Education (SASEE), as a member of IFEES, is co-hosting this event with the University of Pretoria, in conjunction with the South African Engineering Deans’ Forum. WEEF/GEDC provide a strong platform for interaction and consultation with international delegates for the sharing of interests and expertise, and we look forward to welcoming back our returning supporters and providing opportunities for new partners.

We look forward to working with you and thank you in advance for your important support of the congress. 
We plan to have an exciting line-up at the Conference.

General Conference Chair

Prof Sunil Maharaj
