Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is SPEED?
A: The Student Platform for Engineering Education (SPEED) is a global, non-profit student organization that functions as an interdisciplinary network of engineering students, who aspire to provide opinion and create an impact on future development of engineering education and its effect on society and environment.  We look to inspire the actions and development of globally minded, engineering student leaders intent on helping engineering education evolve.  As a member society of the International Federation of Engineering Education Societies (IFEES), we strive to provide important student ideas and perspectives to the international engineering education community.

Q: What is the Indian Student Forum?
A: The ISF (Indian Student Forum) is a national conference organized by SPEED which draws academics, representatives from government, industry and non-profit organizations, and increasingly students from around the world to discuss issues pertinent to engineering education. Through this 3-day event, students will be a part of a national experience, submerged in the atmosphere of cross-cultural communication and creative thinking. Participants will take part in workshops aimed at providing them with tools to find innovative solutions with a global perspective and apply them in their local communities to improve upon engineering education. They will get a chance to learn about existing student projects, get involved and/or start their own regional and global initiatives with the aim of maximizing the student voice within the engineering education community.
