Mathematics Teaching in Engineering Education June 12-14 at EPFL

On June 12-14th, the propedeutic center of EPFL is organising a local event with retransmission of the SEFI Mathematics Teaching in Engineering Education conference to initiate discussions with local collaborators about teaching mathematics and related topics.

The local event will be held at the EPFL premises with coffee breaks included.

Registration here (the cost is 30 euros)

In addition, please register to the local hub with this form before June 1st:  (no extra fees).

The goals of the local hub is to promote Networking for people interested in teaching mathematics in the western part of Switzerland, while facilitating a lower-carbon opportunity to participate in a conference occuring during the exam period.
