Abstract: This year's theme of "Developing Engineers for Social Justice: Community Involvement, Ethics & Sustainability" allows us to expand our scope beyond just the time an engineer spends at university. Our aim is to also capture the pathways into engineering, as well as the professional development of engineers after they graduate and contribute both to industry and to society as a whole. There will be four sub-themes to support this overarching theme: Humanitarian engineering, Inclusivity, Ongoing graduate professional development, and Pathways into engineering.
