What is Indian Student Forum?
The Indian Student Forum (ISF) is a national conference organized by SPEED India which draws engineering students from various regions of India to discuss issues pertinent to engineering education. Through this three day event, students will be a part of global 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 with a global perspective and apply them in their local communities to improve upon engineering education. They will get a chance to learn about existing student projects, get involved and/or start their own regional and national initiatives with the aim of maximizing the student voice within the engineering education community. This event is a part of the International Conference on Transformations in Engineering Education (ICTIEE). The overall plan for the ISF is two-fold: to positively impact our current position of Indian engineering students as budding global engineers who are eager to affect change within the engineering education and local communities; and to show the professional stakeholders that students are a much larger piece of this puzzle than they are currently given credit for and are entitled to a voice within the engineering education dialogue.
