About AEDS 2017
The University of New South Wales is honoured to host the Asian Engineering Deans Summit (AEDS) 2017 and look forward to welcoming distinguished Deans of Engineering to Sydney, Australia.
Engineering Schools and Faculties globally are facing new challenges, opportunities and expectations. These require us to serve the future needs of engineering students, businesses and societies in a rapidly changing world. The AEDS is a platform to discuss these important topics related to engineering education and research.
