Trends in Engineering Education and Quality Assurance in the 21st Century


Mitsunori Makino

  • Chuo University


From the end of the 20th century to the beginning of the 21st century, engineering education in higher education underwent a paradigm shift from "what (faculty) teach" to "what (students) acquire.” As a result, emphasis has been placed on the educational outcomes of students when the quality of education should be guaranteed.

The Washington Accord is one of the major international frameworks for third-party accreditation of engineering education programs with an emphasis on learning outcomes. Non-governmental accreditation bodies in the countries and regions of the ITC-CSCC participants, such as Japan, Korea, and Thailand, are signatory or provisional members of the Washington Accord, and mutually recognize engineering education programs in their respective countries and regions under the concept of substantial equivalence. Since engineers often work in different countries, it is important to have international recognition of the content and standards of the education that forms the basis of their work. Also, for higher education institutions that have been forced to make a major shift to online teaching methods due to the spread of COVID-19, it will become increasingly important to prove that the quality of education can be internationally accepted by participants from anywhere. Under such situations, the development of evaluation methods to guarantee such learning outcomes, and the development of educational methods that enable students to have such learning outcomes, can be the subject of R&D for ICT-based systems. Therefore, university faculty and industry researchers, especially in ICT-related fields, should pay attention to the international trends in engineering education both as educators and researchers.

In this keynote, the speaker would like to introduce his experience of more than 20 years in the development of accrediting projects and evaluation/education methods, while participating in and presenting his research at ITC-CSCC. In the first half of the keynote, he will first describe the Washington Accord and the learning outcomes that are required in engineering education. Next, he will give an overview of the current status of member institutions and introduce the cooperation between Japan and Indonesia. In the second half, he will introduce rubric-based competency development, which he has been working on for more than 10 years at Chuo University, and examples of learning support systems based on cross-reality (XR), which is his research field, as educational methods for evaluating and extracting learning outcomes.

Dr. Mitsunori Makino was born in 1964. He graduated from Waseda University, Japan in 1987 and received an engineering doctor degree from Waseda University in 1992. In 1992 he joined the Faculty of Science and Engineering, Chuo University, Japan, and a professor at the Department of Information System and Engineering of the faculty since 2004. He served as a vice dean of the faculty in 2009-2013. Since 2008 he has been involved in the rubric-based competency development program in his faculty.

He was promoted to a fellow member of IEICE in 2020. In IEICE, he served a chair of the circuits and systems technical committee in 2010-2011, a vice president of the Engineering Sciences Society (ESS) in 2013-2014, an Editor-in-Chief of the IEICE Transactions on Fundamentals in 2011-2013, an Editor of the IEICE Journal in 2009-2011. Also he serves currently as a chair of the Accreditation Policy Committee, and a member of the Copyright Management Committee in IEICE.

About 20 years from 1995 he was a member of the international operation & coordination group in ITC-CSCC and JTC-CSCC, the predecessor conference of ITC-CSCC. He served as a Technical Program Co-chair at ITC-CSCC2002, and a General Co-chair at ITC-CSCC2006. Also in IEEE CAS society (CASS), he serves as a Senior Editor of JETCAS, and was a chapter chair of the CASS Japan Joint Chapter in 2018-2019.

Related to the keynote, he serves as both a chair of the Criteria Committee and a Director in JABEE, which is a signatory member of the Washington Accord.

Common-Mode Voltage Mitigation by Modulation Techniques for Voltage Source Converters


Yuttana Kumsuwan

  • Chiang Mai University


The speech covers a practical introduction to two-and three-level voltage-source converters (VSCs) with AC load applications. It will guide audience through all fields of AC motor drive system analysis, modeling, simulation, and research. It mainly focuses on the common-mode (CM) voltage mitigation by novel nine-switch VSC fed an open-end winding AC motor and twelve-switch three-level VSC with a new modulation technique. This presentation will explain how various modulation strategies are utilized to eliminate the CM voltage in these converters. Throughout, important concepts are shown with the Matlab/Simulink simulations, and modeling guidance is provided with voltages, and current waveforms. To help the audience understand the principle and operation of two-and three-level VSIs with modulation techniques, some case studies are given in this presentation. This presentation not only serves as a valuable reference for academic researchers, practicing engineers, and consultants, but also as a modeling for graduate and senior-year undergraduate students.

Yuttana Kumsuwan (M’12), B.Eng., M.Eng., Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, P.Eng. (Thailand) has been a teacher at Rajamangala Institute of Technology and Chiang Mai University, Thailand for more than 20 years. From 2007 to 2008, he was a Visiting Professor at Texas A&M University, College Station, USA and at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Ryerson University, Toronto, ON, Canada in 2010. He joined the Chiang Mai University, Chiang Mai, Thailand, in 2011, where he is currently a Professor in Electrical Engineering. He has authored or coauthored more than 80 technical papers in the area of power electronic applications, electric drives, and renewable energy systems. Dr. Kumsuwan is an active member of IEEE Industrial Electronics Society and Power Electronics Society. He served as an associate editor for ECTI-EEC transaction. He was also the Technical Program Co-Chairman of International Conference on Electrical Machines and Systems (ICEMS) 2015. In addition, he received the iEECON Paper Award in 2014, the IECON Industrial Electronics Society Paper Award in 2016, and the ECTI-CON Paper Awards in 2013, 2015, 2016, and 2020, respectively.
