As engineering increasingly impacts the nation’s economy, security, and prosperity, high demands have been set for engineering schools to graduate an ever greater number of quality students trained to meet the needs of business and industry. Rapid changes in engineering worldwide have motivated the profession to re-evaluate how future engineers should be educated to develop students’ engineering thought processes and improve analytical and problem-solving skills.
Engineering educators prepare these students, not only through quality instruction, but also through application of their current research discoveries about how learning comprehension and recall are best achieved. Engineering education research is essential in guiding engineering education practices to ensure quality student learning outcomes.
Graduate students in this vital and emerging field, have the opportunity to become involved in cutting-edge engineering education research, such as:
- Teaching and learning strategies
- Cognition and metacognition in engineering education
- Problem solving and framing
- K–12 engineering education
To be a world-class leader in developing and implementing research-based methods for student-centered learning and innovation in engineering.
The mission of the Engineering Education Department at Utah State University is to advance the knowledge, understanding, dissemination, and implementation of evidence-based pedagogical practices into and outside the engineering classroom.
We have summarized this with these three points
- To develop doctoral students as effective engineering educators and researchers;
- To promote scholarship in engineering education through innovative, cutting-edge research and;
- To teach engineering fundamentals for pre-professional students in the College of Engineering and provide them relevant and sound learning experiences.
Our goal is to produce graduates with proficiency in engineering pedagogy and expertise in engineering education research. We have summariesed this goal with the following points.
- Advance global innovation by training professional engineers to excel as engineering educators
- Establish evaluative, instructional, and supportive frameworks for engineering teaching and learning
- Develop and implement evidence-based approaches for online, hybrid, and face-to-face learning environments in engineering
- Providing authentic problems and activities emphasizing the application of scientific and technological principles in the classroom
