Announcing the 2017 ASEE Zone 2 Conference

Engineering Everywhere for Everyone
March 2 - 5, 2017

Each year every section in ASEE typically has a spring regional conference. ASEE has 12 sections organized into 4 Zones. Zone 2 consists of the North Central Section, the Illinois Indiana Section and the Southeastern Section. This year the three sections are jointly hosting the Zone 2 conference instead of individual sectional conferences.

The conference theme is "Engineering Everywhere for Everyone", thus, the conference is open to everyone and anyone. You do not have to be a member of Zone 2 to attend the conference.

The Conference will be hosted by ASEE and will be held in San Juan, Puerto Rico at the Caribe Hilton Hotel.

The conference is an opportunity for academic and industry representatives to discuss and share relevant topics in improving the engineering experience. Participants include college deans, department chairs, student service professionals, advisors, faculty in engineering and engineering technology, K-12 teachers, and industry leaders from throughout the country.

More information can be found on the conference flyer or by scanning the web site.
