Calls for Expressions of Interest in hosting the 2027 AAEE Conference

The AAEE conducts an annual conference throughout Australia and New Zealand to promote engineering education scholarship and facilitate the dissemination of research and best practices throughout the engineering education community. An EOI to host AAEE2027 is due on 18 November 2024. Hosting this conference brings substantial visibility to your university and city. It provides a great networking platform and professional development opportunities within engineering education.

The AAEE committee is currently reviewing the bid documentation, and we expect the ‘Procedures to Host the 2027 conference’ to be made available on the AAEE website by the end of July at the latest. In the meantime, please contact with any questions or queries.
