Welcome to the Engineering Development Forum

The Engineering Development Forum is a unique resource for enhancing the success of development professionals, communicators, administrators and private sector representatives charged with advancing university engineering programs. This is achieved primarily through hosting an annual development-focused conference.

Thank you for your support of EDF and interest in attending the 2019 Engineering Development Forum. Due to an overwhelming response to this year’s conference we regret to say all registrations including guest tickets for The San Diego Experience are sold out.

Wow! What an amazing response we have had for EDF 2019. We regret to say that we have run out of seating space. While we are working on arrangements for additional seating opportunities, if you missed out on registration, we have an opportunity for a wait list. We expect early sign-ups to have a pretty good chance of getting the opportunity to register within the next month, but we can’t commit to selling the seats until we are sure we will have them.  Thank you for your patience.
Please email mayson@eng.ucsd.edu if you’d like to be added to the waitlist.
– EDF Executive Committee
