Abstract

Brazil’s quick ingression into international educational communities both in North America and in Europe and growth of quality level of Brazilian engineering standards of education became an objective reality in recent years. Its active participation in the work of various conferences and societies all over the world has considerably enhanced old educational traditions and formed a new generation of young engineers capable to resolve many acute problems of Brazil’s national economy in the most efficient way. In many aspects this success is supported by a series of recent conferences intended to increase the role of national engineering education and to attract the recognized international organizations and institutions for mutually beneficial cooperation. The educational policy of Brazilian government has played a decisive part in all these enterprises. The stability of the steady gradual rise of engineering education quality in Brazil is in many aspects caused by organizing regular international conferences where all vital and important problems of engineering education are being discussed in utmost open and lively atmosphere. Theoretical and practical issues are considered in sessions and workshops intended to give an immediate vocational training to young Brazilian educators participating in the event. In their turn, the young professors are eager for applying their newly acquired educative ideas and innovative initiatives to their local universities; and the regular conferences with a participation of recognized educators from foreign and national technical universities give a good basis for that.

1. Introduction

Brazil has been present in international educational communities not only in North America but also in Europe and the growth of quality level of Brazilian engineering standards of education became an objective reality in recent years [1-3]. It is due partly to the active participation in the work of various conferences and societies all over the world that has considerably enhanced old educational traditions and formed a new generation of young engineers capable to resolve many acute problems of Brazil’s national economy in the most efficient way. In some ways the success is supported by a series of conferences with the goal to increase the role of national engineering education and to attract the recognized international organizations and institutions for mutually beneficial cooperation. The educational policy of Brazilian government has played a decisive part in all these enterprises [4-6].
