Presentation Title: Globalization and its Impact on Engineering Education
In the next decade, graduates in STEM disciplines will need to work and thrive in a world that is far more globalized than what we are used to today. An engineer, who graduates with a bachelor’s degree in 2025, will be mid-career in 2050 (or thereabouts). This engineer will need to work and succeed in a world that knows no intellectual confines, wherein working across national boundaries is going to be an absolute necessity.
Today, the design, manufacture and sales of engineering products often requires effective global partnerships. This extends to the service industry also. Over the past decade, the need for effective global partnerships has increased significantly. The increased use of the internet combined with enhanced communications has resulted in engineers working in a global marketplace. Consequently, our graduates need to have the global and cultural competency to work with colleagues around the world. It is under this framework and context that today’s leading universities are working hard to initiate, develop and sustain robust academic partnerships with other institutions across the globe. These academic partnerships enhance our students’ educational experience while concurrently initiating and cultivating research initiatives along with active idea exchange. In addition, in today’s global world, international experiences enhance a student’s employability, help to develop soft skills, enhance cultural understanding, and are a testament to one’s adaptability.
At present, several effective models of international collaboration actively and effectively incorporate students, staff and faculty. These models and their associated strategies address academia’s needs and impact a broad spectrum ranging from freshmen through doctoral students, faculty, staff, and academic (campus) leaders. Examples range include (but are not limited to) traditional study abroad and exchange programs to international internships to combined curriculum (undergraduate and graduate programs), collaborative research endeavors, and joint (international) centers. In each case, substantial benefits accrue to both the individual (engineer) and the participating academic institutions.
The design and implementation of comprehensive international programs requires substantial investment in the form of time and monetary resources. However, the outcomes always include memorable experiences that bond and rally students and alumni to the programs and services provided by their alma mater. The invaluable impact on the academic experience of a student cannot be overstated. Besides, international experience is becoming a necessity for successful faculty members while active and effective international programs are today a hallmark of a successful university.

Topic: The technological singularity movement: will the singularity occur around 2045?
Abstract: A technological singularity is a dramatic change in technology and application of artificial intelligence; it will come to a point where the state of the change becomes completely unpredictable and uncontrollable. Ray Kurzweil, the guru of Singularity Movement (SM) believes that the singularity will occur before the end of the 21st century, predicting the date as year 2045. He predicts a great change in human civilization; human beings will become human/machine cyborgs – godlike hybrids capable of nearly infinite intelligence and immortal existence. The two main goals of the SM are true artificial intelligence and immortality. The SM advocates predict that the advances in computational power, genomics, and medicine will allow human to live forever in a techno-utopia. One of the basic claims of the SM advocates is that computing technology and medical knowhow are expected to grow exponentially as suggested in Moores Law and other generalizations of Moores Law. Kurzweil writes that, due to paradigm shifts, a trend of exponential growth will continue and that in a relatively near future, the computing power of all computers will exceed that of human brains, with superhuman artificial intelligence appearing in all domains of human life. This talk will introduce the technological singularity movement and investigates from different perspectives the claim of the SM advocates.
