This document provides the keynote address and papers delivered at the 1991 California State University Conference on Innovation in Engineering Education which focused on the pre-engineering curriculum. The conference was convened as a collaborative effort by faculty to address the following issues in engineering education: (1) the attraction and retention of women and minorities in the engineering field; (2) curricula revision to allow for innovation; (3) the incorporation of technology into teaching and learning styles; (4) better preparation of incoming high school graduates for pursuing an engineering curriculum; and (5) measuring teaching effectiveness. Speeches and papers and their authors are as follows: "the Engineering Council for Teaching and Learning" (C. E. Rathmann);"Using Distance Learning Technologies to Teach Pre-Engineering to High School Students" (D. P. Coduto); "Computer Solution of Engineering Problems" (D. E. Kirk and A. M. Davis); "A Workplace in Ergonomics and Engineering Design for High School/Pre-Engineering College Students" (K. Abedini); "An Introductory Engineering Course to Provide Skills and Motivation" (S. de Haas and K. Ferrara); "An Engineering Orientation Course as a Pre-Engineering Retention Tool" (C. O. Allen and V. V. Krishnan); "Introduction to Engineering Design: A Freshman Mechanical Engineering Course" (R. Roth); "Technology Based Instruction in Integrated Computer Graphics/CAD" (S. Krishnamurthy and N. Mousouris); "Design of a Modern Curriculum for Lower Division Engineering Core" (N. A. Ibrahim). (Contains 6 references.) (GLR)
