2021 Day 203 Task – Southern Journal of Engineering Education Symposium

The South African Society for Engineering Education (SASEE) is pleased to announce their upcoming symposium celebrating the launch of the Southern Journal of Engineering Education.

The Southern Journal of Engineering Education (SJEE) is a scholarly forum for the publication of original research that is relevant to the international engineering education community. The journal is ‘southern’ in that it values critical perspectives on the unique challenges facing engineering education in South Africa and the Global South. The SJEE is an open-access publication that promotes the development of high-quality scholarship through a supportive peer-review process. (About www.sjee.org.za)
