Contents Notes
"Engineering education is currently on the verge of a major transformation. However, while the need has been much discussed and several proposals for change have been put forward, relatively little focus has been put on actual implementation of the proposed changes. This book examines a program that has a long history of experimentation in engineering education. Written by experts on the subject, it describes specific topics with each chapter focusing on a specific innovation that has been carried out and explaining the educational pedagogy the learning benefit, as well as the transferability of the approach"-- I: The need and context -- Meeting new challenges: transforming engineering education -- One world: preparing engineers for the global economy -- Engineers: leaders, innovators, and builders -- Holistic education: learning and doing in context -- II: Effective practices -- Ignition: the great problems seminars -- Global citizenship: students solving real problems around the world -- Fostering citizenship and advocacy through the humanities and arts -- The capstone project: an integrated experience -- Technical education in the innovation economy -- A new discipline for a new century: robotics engineering -- Graduate education for the professional engineer -- Holistic graduate education: fire protection engineering -- III: Outcomes and implications -- Forty years of outcomes-based project centric education: lessons learned -- So much accomplished: so much to be done.
