What is Engineering Education?

Engineering education advances the profession and transforms the way engineers are taught. The field is dominated by engineers who want to provide students with better learning experiences than what they, themselves, had. Impacting practice is a strong value and distinguishes engineering education from other fields. We want to help students by researching their educational experiences so we can implement more inclusive and effective educational approaches.
