Changes and upheavals: between ambitions and realities

We live in a time of increasingly rapid change. Whether foreseeable or unexpected, desired or imposed, disruption raises the question of our resilience and our ability to find collective and individual solutions to a set of environmental, social and systemic challenges.

These observations lead to many questions :

  • What answers (technological, civic, personal, societal) are available ?
  • How can we find a consensus between generations?
  • How can we reconcile a long-term vision with our own aspirations and freedom of choice?

During our International Week, we will focus on these questions and their implications in engineering education.   With our students in mind, our activities include formal and informal discussions, sharing of teaching practices, guest teacher presentations, and student projects.

The  working language is English, with participant communications in Spanish, German, French.
