Description & Coverage
Description:

Engineering education methods and standards are important features of engineering programs that should be carefully designed both to provide students and stakeholders with valuable, active, integrated learning experiences, and to provide a vehicle for assessing program outcomes. With the driving force of the globalization of the engineering profession, standards should be developed for mutual recognition of engineering education across the world, but it is proving difficult to achieve.

The Handbook of Research on Engineering Education in a Global Context provides innovative insights into the importance of quality training and preparation for engineering students. It explores the common and current problems encountered in areas such as quality and standards, management information systems, innovation and enhanced learning technologies in education, as well as the challenges of employability, entrepreneurship, and diversity. This publication is vital reference source for science and engineering educators, engineering professionals, and educational administrators interested in topics centered on the education of students in the field of engineering.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Diversity and Inclusion
  • Educational Innovations
  • Globalization
  • Higher Education
  • Management Systems
  • Problem-Based Learning
  • Quality Assurance
  • Technology-Enhanced Learning
