Engineering Education

Strengthening Student Success and Inclusion

Engineering education is evolving to ensure successful graduates have acquired technical expertise complemented with creativity, an appreciation of societal needs, and the ability to function in an inclusive, collaborative global landscape. Engineering educators use instructional practices known to enhance student engagement and learning, thereby achieving critical student learning outcomes. These practices include the use of evidence-based pedagogical approaches such as project- or problem-based learning and the use of modern delivery methods that blend online learning with interactive classroom sessions. Engineering educators are engaged in partnerships to promote engineering in the K-12 arena to help sustain and grow the pipeline of diverse students who enter the engineering profession.
