Conference sponsors and affiliates play an important role in supporting the FYEE conference. This support subsidizes the cost of the meal functions and special events. We appreciate these supporters and the part they play in making the 2016 FYEE conference an outstanding event.
The 2016 First Year Engineering Experience Conference is supported financially by The Ohio State University Department of Engineering Education and the First-Year Programs Division of the American Society for Engineering Education. Additional conference support was received by AEP Credits Count program and Dassault Systemes SolidWorks Corp.
This annual conference is also supported by the University of Pittsburgh, Youngstown State University, California State University, Los Angeles, and Notre Dame University. The conference received start-up money in 2012 from the National Science Foundation to help develop the mission of the conference.
The 2016 General Chairs, Local Planning Committee, and Steering Committee noted below were instrumental in the planning and execution of this conference.
Over 200 academic representatives are expected at this conference. Participants will include college deans, department chairpersons, and faculty in engineering and engineering technology, engineering student service staff and advisors, plus industry leaders from throughout the country. The majority of the attendees, however, are engineering and engineering technology faculty. These attendees also help support the conference.
