The newly-established Department of Engineering Education seeks to study and implement new strategies for scaling and translation of engineering education research findings into widespread classroom practice.
SUNY Distinguished Teaching Professor Carl Lund is selected as the Chair of the new UB Department of Engineering Education. His mission is to translate engineering research findings related to inclusiveness and equity into classroom practice. In addition, he seeks to increase the diversity within the engineering profession. Dr. Lund, as a chair of the new Engineering Education Department, deems that scaling and translation of engineering education research to engineering classroom practice will result in a robust and adaptive U.S. engineering education system that efficiently and effectively yields a diverse population of more highly knowledgeable, competent and qualified engineers.
