Quanser to Host Korean Academic Delegates Researching Best Practices in Engineering Education

Quanser will host a delegation of faculty members representing the Innovation Centers for Engineering Education (ICEE) Korea on Wednesday, January 4th.

The purpose of the Korean delegation's trip is to gain insight into best practices in engineering education in Canada, then adopt key practices to improve the quality and quantity of engineering graduates in their country. The itinerary includes visits to the engineering departments at the University of Waterloo and York University. Quanser will be their only industry visit.

"We're deeply honoured to be the only industry stop on the ICEE Korea itinerary," says Paul Gilbert, Quanser CEO. "As a company focused on educating the next generation of engineering innovators, we're keen to share our experience in enabling the kind of captivating laboratory teaching that not only brings engineering concepts to life, but motivates students to graduate and seek new solutions to engineering challenges."

Quanser's dedication to pace-setting education solutions was recently recognized when it was named "most innovative company" in Markham, one of Canada's leading high tech business zones.

The Korean delegation will tour Quanser headquarters, meet key staff and learn how Quanser educational solutions are assisting over 2000 universities worldwide to attract, motivate and graduate engineering students. The half day event will include demonstrations of popular and innovative engineering lab experiments, including a tele-operation robotic device.
