NSU Sponsored Latin American and Caribbean Consortium of Engineering Institutions

Nova Southeastern University (NSU) were proud to be a key sponsor for the Latin American and Caribbean Engineering Institutions (LACCEI) 15th Engineering Consortium, that took place this year in Boca Raton, FL from July 19 through the 21. This event is designed to help foster partnerships among academia, industry, government and private organizations from more than 30 different countries.

“NSU is honored to be a sponsor for LACCEI this year, and to be able to provide a tour of our gorgeous Fort Lauderdale campus to those attending the conference,” said Yong Tao, Ph.D. the Dean of NSU’s College of Engineering and Computing. “We are looking forward to sharing details about how our programs at the College of Engineering and Computing are preparing students to embark in careers that have such urgent needs in our community, such as Cyber Security, Software Engineering and Analytics. We strive to stay engaged and to support initiatives such as LACCEI consortium because this conference gathers individuals from various backgrounds that can bring fresh ideas to current and crucial issues such as how to create a more gender inclusive environment in technology.”

Maria Petrie, Ph.D., Executive Director of LACCEI, said: “We are thrilled to have the continued support of NSU this year and to be able to host this event here in sunny South Florida. We are excited to generate awareness about important emerging issues in our field – bringing some of the greatest minds together to discuss topics such as sustainability in Engineering education, for example.”

With expert Key Note Speakers in their fields, such as Dr. Bevlee A. Watford, Dr. Dave Holder and Eng. Jaime Salazar C., LACCEI is bound to be a great and informative networking event for engineering professionals, higher education leaders and staff, as well as students; thus bridging the gap between academia and industry. Additionally, students were invited to submit research papers in English, Spanish Portuguese and French.

Some of the attendees this year include Florida Atlantic University (FAU), National University of the East (Paraguay), Technological University of Pereira (Colombia), Villanova University, Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), Florida International University (FIU), MATHWORKS, ARM Software, the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE), and Nova Southeastern University (NSU), just to name a few.
