The Mediterranean Centre for Engineering and Technology Education (MCETE) is established as a satellite centre of the World Institute for Engineering and Technology Education (WIETE) and aims in the development and maintenance of an independent global network of individuals and institutions concerned with the quality of engineering and technology education based in the Mediterranean countries.

As Mediterranean countries educational system and culture appears in having some similarities between them but also some differences between the so called Northern countries systems, the MCETE seeks to promote the efforts of the WIETE by facilitating research development and transfer of information on engineering and technology education by focusing on maritime and environmental engineering, which for many years are very important and interesting sectors for all Mediterranean countries.
