Session Chairs: TBA
The increasing globalization of the world's economies demands that engineers practice internationally and that barriers to their mobility across national boundaries are eliminated or, at least, minimized. Many countries impose licensing requirements on engineers to ensure that they have the appropriate education and experience for practice. Two sessions are planned, consisting of papers and panel discussions, to examine means of increasing the mobility of engineers (especially for countries with stringent licensing requirements such as Canada and the USA) and of widening the recognition of high-quality engineering programs offered in countries with and without accreditation systems. The sessions will conclude with identifying special initiatives for members of TMS and related organizations regarding international mobility and accreditation.
