About the seminar
We would like to invite you to attend the MSIG2023, the 21st SEFI SIG in Mathematics seminar, to be held on 11-14 June 2023. The seminar is held in the city of Tampere (Finland), which is defined by a few unique characteristics: it is surrounded by beautiful lakes and eskers, it has a perfect scale for walking and there’s always something new and innovative going on. The centre of the city is dominated by industrial heritage; the national landscape of Tammerkoski rapids and historical red brick buildings.
The seminar is organized by Tampere University of Applied Sciences and the Special Interest Group of Mathematics of the SEFI organization. The SEFI (European Society for Engineering Education) Special Interest Group in Mathematics – SIG in Mathematics (known as the former Mathematics Working Group (MWG) was established in 1982. Its aims include providing a forum for the exchange of views and ideas amongst those interested in engineering mathematics, and promoting a broader understanding of the role of mathematics in the engineering curriculum, and its relevance to industrial needs. The Working Group issued the third edition of its curriculum document (“A Framework for Mathematics Curricula in Engineering Education”) in September 2013. This edition is based on mathematical competencies in didactical research with emphasis on practise roles of researchers and practitioners and ideas for cooperation. How to assess competencies and the major aim of teaching mathematics as a tool to future engineers will also be discussed topics.
