Engineering education has evolved over a relatively short span of three centuries, from an apprenticeship and self-regulated learning model to a structured college system with predominantly classroom delivery. The current pace of progress in knowledge and new skills driven by the industry are rapidly pressing the need for reform in engineering higher education. New paradigms have emerged in the form of microdegrees and stackable credentials, along with a focus on contextual engineering education, grounded in experiential and project-based learning. In this workshop, IFEES plans for establishing a framework for accrediting stackable credentials and micro-degrees at the global level will be discussed. By the end of this workshop, an 8-month road map for launching a global accreditation system for microdegrees and stackable credentials will be formulated, with input from participants.
