The Conference

Rowan University will be hosting the 9th Conference on Engineering Education for Sustainable Development (EESD) in June 2018.


We warmly welcome you to Rowan University and hope you join us at EESD2018 in the first week of June of 2018. This year’s theme—Creating the Holistic Engineer—brings about the reality that current and future engineers cannot work in silos and that the broader understanding of the complexity of all human activity is crucial for the development of sound engineering practices.
