This event is a proof of a long-term partnership between 2 institutions who has started CDIO together in 2013 and continue their journeys in improving their engineering and non-engineering education for almost a decade. There are more challenges for educators ahead regarding the VUCA and the post-pandemic world. As CDIO Thailand is part of the CDIO community, we learn and share the best practices with other leading universities around the world.
The organizing committees would like to thank all attendees for your commitments and contributions to our CDIO community. We promised to provide a good virtual conference experience.
