History and Use of Engineering Cases.
Fuchs, H. O.
The use of engineering cases as tools for learning engineering is stated to be about 10 years old. A brief account of the origin for years before 1950 is given. A note is made of an initial meeting held in 1962 when the potential of the case approach in teaching engineering was discussed. By 1964, case programs were in operation at three schools. Each are described briefly. Note is made of the formation of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) Engineering Case Program Committee in 1971. The present members, 1976, are listed. The Engineering Case Library (ECL) which publishes and distributes case pamphlets is described. The Korea Advanced Institute of Science is cited as a good example of where this curriculum procedure has been successful. References are cited. (EB)
