Once more I was able to join the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) 2017 annual conference which was held in Columbus Ohio. I was able to speak to countless educators, partners and thought leaders during my 3 days there, and after a little down time, I found myself in front of my computer to think through some of my major takeaways. Between conversations with influential educator Dr. Harry Powell of the University of Virginia, to seeing first hand the impact of trends like IoT - it was another fantastic conference. Here are my top 3 insights from that event.

The Shell Eco-marathon is an autosport event, which challenges young engineers to design, build and drive the most energy-efficient car. With three annual events in Asia, Americas and Europe, 500 teams from 50 countries take to the track to see who goes farthest on a single litre of fuel.
We sent NI engineers to London to check out this year’s European Eco-marathon and to meet the NI sponsored teams.
Educators, what would your students say to you five years into their careers? Recent graduates and young professionals, what feedback do you have for your professors now that you're out in the "real world"?
