The director of Integrative Systems + Design, Ed Borbely, was reelected to the governing council of the International Association for Continuing Engineering Education (IACEE) for a two year term beginning July 2014. IACEE is an international non-profit organization whose goal is to support and enhance lifelong engineering education and training world-wide.
Borbely was also selected as Director of the IACEE Quality Program. This initiative, with funding from the European Union and the U.S. Department of Education, has developed a self-assessment and benchmarking tool that is the first international standard for managing quality in continuing professional development programs. The online tool asks a series of questions and, based on the answers, shows the organization where it is with respect to the standard and in relation to its peers.
