After a full year’s preparation, the Asian Society for Engineering Education (AsiaSEE) was officially launched and a launching ceremony was held at the University of Hong Kong (HKU).

By providing a networking platform for different parties to engage in dialogues and share resources, AsiaSEE encourages collaboration across Asia to improve engineering education. More than 40 guests and founding members of the Society, who hold important positions as Presidents, Deans, and Professors in Asian universities attended the Launching Ceremony.

At the moment, there are 28 founding members in AsiaSEE, coming from universities including Hong Kong, Singapore, Korea, Mainland China, Thailand, India, Philippines, Taiwan, Malaysia, Macau, Vietnam and UAE.

At the opening ceremony, founding members signed a declaration of commitment to join AsiaSEE and to work together for the advancement of engineering education.

The Founding President of AsiaSEE and Associate Professor from Centre for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning at HKU delivered the officiating speech and said that the launch of AsiaSEE would not have been possible without joint efforts from different parties. In this new era, collaboration is needed to provide a better education for the next generation.

After the ceremony, panel discussions with AsiaSEE founding members have held to detail future agendas and to promote sustainable development of the Society. After several rounds of lively discussions, AsiaSEE founding members reached a consensus that AsiaSEE will endeavour to form a partnership with a wider community including engineering educators, engineering industries, students, and government authorities, to reach a broader impact and to promote diversity.

The advancement of engineering empowers a region’s economy and improves people’s livelihood. As the rapid progress of technology entails a more uncertain future, engineering education should also keep abreast with the times to cultivate future engineers with high professionalism as well as a strong sense of morality and responsibility.

Therefore, as the first Asian regional network to improve engineering education, the establishment of AsiaSEE is of profound significance to deepen collaboration and to promote the overall development of engineering in Asia.

The Asian Society for Engineering Education (AsiaSEE), founded in 2019, is the first Asian regional network of higher educational institutions leaders with a commitment to improving engineering education. With over twenty founder members, we contribute to the enhancement and advancement of engineering education.

AsiaSEE organises annual conference and events that facilitate members to exchange ideas, share knowledge and best practice, discuss issues in engineering education, as well as strengthen their network.

​The society’s mission is to be the trusted body in Asia to facilitate communications and cooperation in engineering education between members, institutions, industries, stakeholders and like-minded societies in the world.

The AsiaSEE’s objective is:

  1. To provide a forum for the exchange of ideas to address issues, tackle challenges and advance innovative approaches of engineering education and research in Asia;
  2. To provide opportunities for collaboration between members, institutions, industries, governments, academics, students and relevant stakeholders;
  3. To foster cooperation with other engineering societies and organisations with similar objectives in the world;
  4. To identify and resolve significant issues, differences and challenges in engineering education in Asia;
  5. To promote and provide opportunities for cross-cultural engineering education practices, research and student learning experience;
  6. To facilitate the development of the Asian dimension in engineering education;
  7. To strengthen the basis of engineering education research;
  8. To enhance collaboration between research and teaching staff from the engineering field and the educational field in Asia;
  9. To recognise member contributions in engineering education; and
  10. To promote and enhance students’ social responsibilities as members of the future engineering community.
