International Engineering and Technology Education Conference (IETEC)
The International Engineering and Technology Education Conference (IETEC) is a series of conferences initiated and coordinated by a team of engineering and technology educators from around the globe which has now transformed to an open, collegial and supportive working group. The IETEC involves multiple likeminded universities and organisations from around the world. The IETEC features significant keynote addresses, plenary presentation sessions, interactive workshops, a panel discussion, exhibition stalls and opportunities for international collaborations. The IETEC provides opportunities and forum for engineering and technology educators to discuss important issues and develop strategies to foster engineering and technology education.
The inaugural IETEC (IETEC’11) was successfully organised and staged at Taylor's University, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in January 2011 with collaboration between Central Queensland University, Australia and three Malaysian universities, i.e. Taylor’s University, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) and Universiti Tun Hussein Onn (UTHM) Malaysia. The IETEC’13 was staged in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam in between 3 and 6 November 2013 and was jointly organised by several Universities/organisations in Australia, Vietnam, Malaysia and Russia.
