Global Engineering Education
IEOM Society addresses the issues of Global Engineering Education. There are different levels of readiness of engineering graduates from various parts of the world. One of the main themes of this series is how to reduce the readiness gap around the world. The special focus is given to Industrial Engineering and Manufacturing Engineering including Engineering Management. Are the engineering graduates ready to take on the challenges of the current global economy? With the great success of Global Engineering Education Series of last IEOM conferences, IEOM 2017 Bogota Conference will have a dedicated session for the Global Engineering Education where distinguished speakers will discuss the readiness of engineering graduates for workforce around the world. Thirty six featured speakers will be from various part of the world to address engineering education challenges and opportunities.
Each speaker needs to submit a title of the talk, abstract and a short bio as well as power point presentation. All will be included in the IEOM 2017 Conference proceeding. If you are interested to be distinguished feature speaker, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.

Engineering education challenges with advances of Industrial Revolution – Industry 4.0
Abstract: The world is assisting to a rapid evaluation of technologies and one of most impacted area due to high competition is the industrial area. In the academic area is common to say there is a fourth industrial revolution, with several domains of science and technology being strongly developed and, specially, being integrated with each other, allowing to build evolvable complex systems. Internet of Things, virtualization, data analytics, big-data, distributed control, Cyber-Physical. stems and self-organization, amongst others, are playing an important role in this journey. The new engineer will have to handle and adapt himself with this new context. The universities should be aware and adapt the curriculum and mentality. Enterprise Integration is getting cheaper, real-time, mobile and ubiquitous. Service paradigm is taking an important role. This talk will discuss about these technology challenges and opportunities for educational field.
