The Midwest Section of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) invites manuscript submissions and student poster submissions for the 2018 ASEE Midwest Section Conference, to be held September 16-18, 2018 in Kansas City, MO at the headquarters of J.E. Dunn Construction in downtown Kansas City. This meeting, hosted by the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Computing & Engineering will address various facets of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education, with an emphasis on educational relationships with industry. The theme for this year’s conference is “Putting Engineering Education in Practice.”

Final manuscripts are due August 1, 2018. Manuscripts that do not meet the August 1st deadline will still be considered for presentation if received in final form prior to August 10, 2018, but will not be considered for the best-paper award.
