After a long break, the Conference on Engineering and Architecture Design Education (EADE-2023), was held in face-to-face mode between 12 and 14 June 2023, under the joint patronage of the Faculty of Architecture at Wrocław University of Science and Technology (FA-WUST), Wrocław, Poland; the Faculty of Architecture at Cracow University of Technology (FA-CUT), Kraków, Poland; the Faculty of Architecture at Gdańsk University of Technology (FA-GUT), Gdańsk, Poland; and the Faculty of Architecture and Design at Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava (FAD-STU), Bratislava, Slovakia; as well as the World Institute for Engineering and Technology Education (WIETE), Melbourne, Australia.

The Conference proceedings commenced with the Opening Ceremony held on Monday, 12 June 2023, at which the WIETE Director, Professor Zenon J.

Pudlowski of WIETE, entitled: WIETE Interactive Presentation: Publishing in WIETE journals - acceptance, metrics, impact. Most papers addressed aspects of the Conference topics with a strong focus on architectural education as a specific branch of engineering. The Conference provided the participants with an excellent opportunity to interact with the speakers on all aspects of engineering and architecture design education.
