Title of Keynote: Technological & Engineering Education and the Development of the Brazilian Aeronautical Industry
Abstract: This presentation aims to show how technological and engineering education and industrial development can be closely connected, taking as an example the Brazilian aeronautical industry. The role of education as an agent or instrument of social change and development is widely recognized. In this sense, Education has been chiefly instrumental in preparing the way for the development of science and technology and can be defined as a process which brings changes in the behavior of society. Engineering is an important activity in Brazil. Important examples and achievements of the Brazilian engineering are connected to the establishment of the Brazilian infra-structure; e.g. innovations in deep sea production processes had the contribution of Petrobras and the Brazilian engineering. In the example of the Brazilian aeronautical industry, a success case, the first step was to stablish a modern competitive industry to invest in the formation of highly skilled engineers and technicians which was done with the creation, in 1951, of the Technological Institute of Aeronautics, an institution of higher education and advanced research with emphasis in aerospace science and technology maintained by the Brazilian Federal Government with the support of the Brazilian Air Force, located near Sao Paulo, Brazil. In the case of the Brazilian aeronautical industry, the industry, government and university complemented each other to form the “triple helix”, which is necessary to an effective development of the engineering education and industrial technology. Among the larger emerging countries, Brazil has the biggest industrial sector, with an advanced technology in many areas of the heavy industry.

Title of the Talk: Engineering Students Motivation in the setting of the fourth industrial revolution
Summary of Talk:
Generations, X, Y, Z does not fit the traditional teaching model still used today in many educational institutions. There is a lack of effective motivation; the labor market needs more. Active “hands-on” methodologies brings more interest, motivate, prepare the students to the market and reduce evasion. There is market demand for professionals who have to go beyond the traditional technical training. It is necessary to develop “soft skills” as well it is necessary practical training. The presentation will show what our approach is and will show some achieved results.
