The Second International Symposium
of the Association of European Civil Engineering Faculties

The AECEF Board

The Second AECEF International Symposium will be held at the Department of the Civil Engineering, The Engineering College of Odense, Denmark in May 5-8, 1997.

The Symposium will cover three topics :

  1. On Quality in Civil Engineering Education
  2. On Assessment of Civil Engineering Education
  3. On the Impact of Trainee Service on Qualifications of Civil Engineering Bachelors

The agenda of these themes will be based on three white papers - one on each theme - that will be circulated together with the final announcement (January 1997), and on a subsequent discussion at Symposium workshops.

Papers submitted by participants are also most welcome. They should, however, be brief and each bound up with one of the white papers. All papers submitted with the registration fee will be published as a part of the Symposium Proceedings and will be distributed at the opening of the Symposium.

The Symposium will be held in the premises of The Engineering College of Odense, Denmark; the arrangements will also include a one-day technical visit to the Great Belt Bridge project.

The Second General Assembly of the AECEF will be held at the time of the Symposium.

All correspondence concerning the Symposium should be addresses to the chairman of the Organising Committee :
