Engineering Education


The goal of this project is to support engineering education in Morocco by engaging Moroccan and American engineering expertise in the U.S. and Morocco. The efforts include planning ahead for such critical issues as meeting the engineering needs in Morocco and global recognition of engineering programs in Morocco. For such goals, HMEMSA has initiated contact with ASEE (American Society of Engineering Education) and Universities in Morocco in order to attract the ASEE global colloquium to Morocco and to work towards engineering accreditation in parallel.
