Professor Dr.-Ing. Dr. sc.techn. Dr. h.c. Michael E. Auer


Prof. Dr. Michael E. Auer was Vice-Rector and Professor of Electrical Engineering at Carinthia University of Applied Sciences Villach, Austria for more than 25 years. His scientific work is focused on technology enhanced learning and remote working environments, especially in engineering. For many years he had a teaching position in Microelectronics at the University of Klagenfurt. Furthermore, worked as a visiting professor at the Universities of Amman (Jordan), Brasov (Romania) and Patras (Greece).

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Dr.h.c. Michael E. Auer received his Ing. degree in 1971 and his Ph.D. degree in 1975 with a thesis on «Design and Analysis of ECL Circuits» from the Dresden University of Technology. His working field was the analysis and design of high-speed integrated microelectronic circuits. As a result of this work about 14 patents were registered. Furthermore, he undertook research in the field of multi-valued logic circuitry and its application in microelectronics. He received a degree (Habilitation) with a thesis on «Multi-Valued Logic Circuits» in 1978.

He is author or co-author of more than 230 publications and leading member of numerous national and international organizations in the field of Online Technologies. He is author or leading editor of more than 25 books.

Besides being a co-chair/member of the Program Committees of several international conferences and workshops he is especially involved in the following international conferences:

− founder and general chair of the annual International Conference «Interactive Collaborative Learning» (ICL);

− founder and general chair of the annual International Conference»Remote Engineering and Virtual Instrumentation» (REV);

− chair of the steering committee and for many years conference co-chair of the annual International Conference «IEEE Engineering Education» (EDUCON);

− co-founder and chair of the Executive Committee of the annual International Conference «E-Learning in the Workplace» (ICELW) and since 2020 «The Learning Ideas Conference» (TLIC) in New York, USA;

− founder and Chair of the Scientific Advisory Boards of the International Conferences «Interactive Mobile Communication Technologies and Learning» (IMCL) and «Interactive Computer aided Blended Learning» (ICBL).

He works as an evaluator and coordinator of European Union funded research projects and is member in expert groups of the European Commission.

Michael Auer is Founding-President and CEO of the «International Association of Online Engineering» (IAOE) since 2006, a non-governmental organization that promotes the vision of new engineering working environments worldwide. In 2009 he was appointed as member of the Advisory Board of the European Learning Industry Group (ELIG). He is also since many years chair of the Advisory Board of the International E-Learning Association (IELA).

Furthermore, he is one of the founders of the «Global Online Laboratory Consortium» (GOLC). GOLC is the result of an initiative started in 2009 at MIT to coordinate the work on educational Online Laboratories worldwide.

From 2010-2016 he served as President of the «International Society for Engineering Pedagogy» (IGIP). Now he is General Secretary of IGIP.

In 2015 he was elected as President of the International Federation of Engineering Education Societies (IFEES) for the term 2016-2018. In 2018 he was appointed as one of the presidents of the Institute of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence, Hong Kong (IDSAI) and since 2020 he is a president of the International Engineering and Technology Institute (IETI).

As founder and owner Michael Auer’s main field of action at the present is «CTI Global», which focuses on the support and promotion of educators in publishing their ideas, results, and experiences in the scientific work, offering special conditions for lower income countries under inclusion of many volunteers from all over the globe.

During his work as President and Secretary General of the International Society for Engineering Pedagogy (IGIP), Michael Auer provided the Ukrainian national section of IGIP, as well as UEPA faculty, with significant assistance in organizing work in the engineering pedagogical field and participating in relevant conferences.
