Knowledge Integration Seminar: Research and Educational Initiatives at UofT's Centre for Global EngineeringExport this event to calendar

Friday, March 1, 2013 — 2:30 PM to 4:00 PM EST

Knowledge integration across disciplinary, cultural and geographic divides

Speaker:  Yu-Ling Cheng

Since its formation in 2009, the Centre for Global Engineering has developed 4 new courses and engaged in a number of potentially impactful research projects in global settings. The courses are designed to cultivate the trans-cultural and interdisciplinary skills and attitudes needed to work in an increasingly globalized environment; we believe such skills and attitudes are needed to enhance the impact of the work of engineers. Professor Cheng will describe some aspects of the courses and the research projects to demonstrate how we are approaching integrated innovation.

Yu-Ling Cheng is the Director of the Centre for Global Engineering (CGEN) and Professor of Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry at the University of Toronto. CGEN was established in 2009 to be the focal point and major driver in preparing engineering graduates to meet challenges, responsibilities and opportunities in a globally sustainable future.
