Curriculum Reform and the NSF Engineering Education Coalitions: A Case Study.
Serow, Robert C.; And Others
This paper presents the findings from an evaluation of SUCCEED (Southwestern University and College Coalition for Engineering Education), a National Science Foundation (NSF) coalition. The presentation is made in several stages: (1) a review of the background and goals of the NSF coalitions, SUCCEED in particular; (2) a discussion of the methods used in the evaluation and a summary of the major findings to date; and (3) discussion of the implications of SUCCEED's experiences for other programs aimed at reforming engineering education. The vision of the coalitions is one in which all engineering graduates will possess highly developed technical skills, the attitudes and awareness needed to prosper in the workplace, and motivation to enhance the nation's competitive position in world markets. Evaluation results indicate that the coalitions have contributed to increased access to technology, early exposure to engineering, and outreach towards minority groups. (DDR)
