Institutional Insights: What Every Engineering Dean at the GEDC Annual Conference Needs to Know About EngineeringCAS™

As an engineering dean, you wear a lot of hats these days. To achieve short-term goals, you need to drive “best-fit” enrollment while containing operational and administrative costs. To achieve longer-term goals, you simultaneously need to outline your vision for strategic planning and deliver meaningful trend analysis for your programs, institution and profession.

That’s exactly why you also need to visit the Liaison booth — and learn about the extensive financial and technological benefits of EngineeringCAS™ — at the 2019 Global Engineering Deans Council (GEDC) Annual Conference, in Santiago, Chile, in October.

A Strategy for Success

It’s almost impossible to succeed in today’s competitive recruiting and admissions environment without having robust analytical tools and customizable services that can help diversify your applicant pool, provide better data for forecasting and benchmarking and, of course, enroll the best-fit students for your programs.

EngineeringCAS, the Centralized Application Service (CAS™) for engineering programs, addresses all of those needs and more. It also helps associations serve their members better by providing valuable insights into industry trends. It allows admissions professionals to spend less time on administrative tasks and more time engaging applicants. And it makes it easy for prospective students to navigate through the application process by providing a single-application gateway for multiple schools or programs affiliated with your institution.

Global Goals

Just as the GEDC’s vision is to enhance the capabilities of engineering deans to transform schools in support of societies in a global economy, Liaison’s mission is to transform engineering admissions and marketing. That’s why EngineeringCAS features easy-to-use, configurable cloud-based platforms to make it easier (and less expensive) for you to identify, recruit, admit and enroll students who will thrive at your institution.

For example, EngineeringCAS enables you to:

  • Scale your effort and effectiveness without scaling your resources.
  • Drive application volume through exposure to a broader national and international applicant pool.
  • Easily access real-time trend analysis.
  • Deliver timely, relevant and personalized messages to prospective students.
  • Benefit from a 360-degree view of your enrollment marketing plan performance.

Of course, there are plenty of other great reasons to attend the GEDC Annual Conference. In addition to networking with peers from around the world, engineering deans will have the opportunity to participate in workshops and sessions focused on sustainable development, entrepreneurialism, diversity and the future needs of the profession (among other things).

So, when you get to Santiago for the GEDC Annual Conference in October, please visit Liaison’s booth for more information about how EngineeringCAS can transform the application experience for everyone involved.

We look forward to seeing you there!
