GLOBAL STUDENT FORUM
The GSF (Global Student Forum) event is a global conference organized by the Student Platform for Engineering Education Development (SPEED) which draws academics, representatives from government bodies, industry and non-profit organizations, and an increasing number of students from around the world to discuss issues pertinent to engineering education. 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 with a global perspective and apply them in their local communities. They will get a chance to learn about already existing student projects, get involved and/or start their own regional and global initiatives with the aim of maximizing the student voice within the engineering education community.
What is SPEED?
SPEED is a global, non-profit student organisation 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. Visit: www.worldspeed.org
The Global Student Forum is an all inclusive event. The participants are housed, fed and transported to all activities during the scope of the GSF and WEEF. SPEED has extensive experience in managing this type of event. Therefore, the participants will find a great opportunity to build a valuable networking, partake in interesting activities, community services, industrial visits, cultural evenings, workshops, an intergeneral panel, friendships, and gain a once in a lifetime experience.
