Development of Key Performance Indicators for the Engineering Technology Education Programs in Taiwan
Lee, Lung-Sheng; Lai, Chun-Chin
Online Submission, Paper presented at the International Conference on Engineering Education and Research (iCEER 2004) (Olomouc, Czech Republic, Jun 27-30, 2004)
In comparison with engineering, engineering technology is more practical and purposeful. The engineering technology education programs in Taiwan have been mainly offered in 56 universities/colleges of technology (UTs/CTs) and are anticipated to continuously improve their performance to prepare quality engineering technologists. However, it is necessary to construct well-structured and up-to-date performance indicators for the programs. The authors completed a literature review and identified 22 key performance indicators (KPIs), which are outcome-based and compatible with ABET's accreditation criteria. Then a questionnaire including the KPIs was mailed to 160 randomly sampled engineering technology department chairs in the UTs/CTs in Taiwan to solicit their opinions. This paper presents the background, process and results of this research study. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
