Description

Welcome to the 2018 ASEE Southeastern Section Annual Conference. It’s wonderful to have the conference at the Shores Resort & Spa in beautiful Daytona Beach, Florida, hosted by Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and to have so many ASEE Southeastern Section members attend. This year’s theme of “Educating the Engineer of the Future” focuses our attention on a significant educational responsibility of preparing engineering students for careers extending to near the 22nd century mark. By attending this conference and participating in the workshops and technical sessions, presenting your own educational developments, and discussing best practices with your peers from other Southeastern colleges and universities, you are helping to provide our future engineers with effective engineering education. I am certain that during this conference you will discover new approaches and techniques that will better prepare the engineers of the future.

The Southeastern Section has a long history of active participation of members at our conferences. I would like to encourage everyone to not only attend the technical sessions, but to become more involved in the Section by attending the breakfast meetings on Monday and Tuesday. Division and unit meetings are held each morning at breakfast, with the general interest divisions (Administrative, Instructional, Research, Professional Skills, and K-12) meetings on Monday morning and the discipline specific divisions meetings on Tuesday morning. These meetings are where division officers are elected and where you can learn more about how each division operates.

This conference would not be possible without the effort of many volunteers. I would particularly like to thank the Conference Site Coordinator, Lulu Sun, and the team at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University for arranging this conference; Sally Pardue, the Technical Program Coordinator, for arranging and coordinating the technical program; Tyson Hall for his efforts in creating and updating the paper management system ; all of the authors, workshop presenters, session moderators, and student poster presenters who provide the technical content for the conference; the division chairs and reviewers who work behind the scenes to make the conference possible; the Awards and Recognition Unit and reviewers for recognizing engineering education excellence; the Research Division for conducting the student poster session; the new Proceedings Editor, John Brocato, for organizing the conference proceedings; and the campus representatives for disseminating information about the section locally and encouraging people to participate.

It has been an honor to serve as the Section President of ASEE-SE during the past year. I am very thankful for all of the officers who have spent many hours supporting the Southeastern Section. It has truly been a pleasure working with each of you. Hope to see you all again in 2019 when the ASEE-SE conference will be held at Auburn University in Auburn, Alabama.
