SPEED is a global, non-profit student organization that functions as an interdisciplinary network of engineering students, who aspire to provide opinion and create an impact on future development of engineering education and its effect on society and environment.
The Global Student Forum (GSF) is a global conference organized by the Student Platform for Engineering Education Development (SPEED) which draws academicians, representatives from government bodies, industry & non-profit organizations, and an increasing number of students from all around the world to discuss issues pertinent to the Engineering Education system. Through this week long event, students will be a part of an international experience, submerged in the atmosphere of cross-cultural communication and creative thinking.
Participants will take part in workshops aimed at providing them with tools to find innovative solutions to issues in Engineering Education with a global perspective and apply them in their local communities. Participants will also find a great opportunity to build a valuable networking, partake in interesting activities such as community services, industrial visits, cultural evenings, workshops, intergenerational panels, and gain a once in a lifetime experience.
Register to the 12th GSF and be part of this stunning experience!

EMPOWERING THE MILLENIALS
SPEED's highlight annual event for the year 2016 occurs from

The 12th GSF theme will focus on components of UN Millenium Development Goals, trying that to the WEEF theme titled “Engineering Education for Smart Society”.
EMPOWERING THE MILLENIALS
The theme for SPEED’s Global Student Forum this year is, “Empowering the Millennials”. This theme is an amalgamation of SPEED's mission of empowering students to create change for themselves and their communities, and the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) forwarded by the United Nations. The four tracks for the GSF are in-line with the MDGs:
1. Eradicate extreme poverty & hunger
2. Achieve universal primary education
3. Promote gender equality & empower women
4. Ensure Environmental Sustainability
In addition to these tracks, the theme for the forum also upholds the MDG of “Global Partnership for Development”, as participants from diverse backgrounds will come together to generate action plans to meet these goals for populations of their interest. At the 12th GSF this year, we celebrate a Decade of SPEED, and Millennials from around the globe will work towards meeting these MDGs via the means of engineering education and its development.
