'The Changing Role of the Engineering Educator for developing the Future Engineer'

 Pacific Bay Resort at Coffs Harbour

Welcome to the website of the 27th Australasian Association for Engineering Education (AAEE) Annual Conference. AAEE2016 is being hosted by Southern Cross University and will be held in Coffs Harbour, Australia, on 4-7 December 2016.

The Organising Committee has chosen the Novotel Pacific Bay Resort at Coffs Harbour as the conference venue for AAEE2016, situated on the East Coast of Australia and surrounded by ocean, mountains, natural forest and banana plantations. The Coffs Harbour Campus of Southern Cross University is a short drive away, with its National Marine Science Centre a short walk from the venue.

Since its first offering in 1989, the AAEE conference series has grown into a well-respected and well-known forum aimed to promote scholarship in engineering education and to facilitate the dissemination of best practices throughout the engineering education community.

Historically, AAEE has generally themed conference events and for 2016 the theme is 'The Changing Role of the Engineering Educator for developing the Future Engineer'. This theme touches upon multiple contemporary aspects that can be explored during the conference.

On behalf of the organising committee, a very warm welcome to Coffs Harbour in 2016 and I am looking forward to a most enjoyable event.
