Union College is proud to sponsor the TENTH Symposium on Engineering and Liberal Education

Friday and Saturday, June 2 and 3, 2017 in Schenectady,  New York

We invite abstracts on any topics that relate to how engineering integrates into a liberal arts education, and how liberal arts integrate into an engineering education. We also welcome your ideas for organizing sessions or workshops for this year’s symposium. At this stage, we are planning a special session on sustainable urban development/renewal to examine how liberal arts and engineering disciplines are working side by side to improve many aspects of urban living. We will also have two special sessions devoted to “civic engagement” and “sharpening focus on global grand challenges”.

Abstracts should be 250-300 words and may be submittedusing this FORM. If you would like your abstract to be considered as part of a special session or as a session proposal, workshop, or some other kind of non-traditional format, please indicate this in your submission and we will be happy to work with you on your ideas. Here are some deadlines
