Gender and Interdisciplinary Education for engineers – GIEE 2011

Paris University on 23-24 June, 2011 Does Interdisciplinary Education improve the gender balance and attract more young people in Engineering and Technology higher education? Attracting more young people, particularly women, in Engineering and Technology (ET) is a major concern in Europe today.

Young people participation in engineering occupations appears to be a key-issue for European economic and technical development, as well as a central achievement towards gender equality and social justice. Increasing young people interest in the sciences and mathematics and underlining the importance of Engineering and Technology developments in shaping our collective future is an ongoing project in the education sector.
