Upspeeding technological evolution and globalisation characterise today's and future lives of engineers. It is vital for all institutions involved in engineering education to keep pace and to anticipate future needs. Which role to attribute to non-technical qualifications? How to interpret ethical aspects in education? Do we have to define international standards in education? What about quality control? What is the potential of new media for knowledge transfer? How to organise lifelong learning for engineers? More than 150 specialists from 25 countries discussed these and related topics during the 3rd Workshop on Global Engineering Education (GEE'3) which took place at Aachen University of Technology, 18-20 October 2000. The contributions of internationally leading experts from both universities and industries reported in these Proceedings provide background information of the ongoing discussion on innovating engineering education on a global level, necessary for everyone who wants to participate in this endeavour.
