The American Society for Engineering Education has elected Dr Wei Liu as a Director and Executive board member of 'Design in Engineering Education Division (DEED)' of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE).
The purpose of DEED is to address the design education issues of virtually every engineering discipline and to share knowledge, learning and best-practice experience that improves the quality of design education skills. To this end, the division sponsors programmes and other activities which address the particular problems and needs of design in engineering education. The DEED is one of largest academic/professional divisions in ASEE with more than 800 members worldwide. Wei is the only Executive board member from a non-US university.
Commenting on her election, Wei said:
I’m honoured to have been elected as a director and board member of DEED and have the opportunity to work with global engineering educators. Embedding design into engineering education effectively is an essential part of transforming engineering education to inspire thinking and creativity for new generations of engineers. Working with DEED means exchanging ideas and best practices with US and global universities, employers and professional bodies. The experience of leading design education curriculum development at King’s engineering encourages me to contribute to this role with good preparation.”–
