Decision making is central to the teaching of engineering, however, little has been written about the teaching decisions of engineering educators. By exploring the processes through which engineering educators make teaching decisions and the factors they consider, the authors can use decision making as a means to understand their teaching practices and gain a better understanding of how to help engineering educators make more effective decisions about their teaching. The results of this study will be useful to practicing engineering educators because it describes specific ways in which current faculty address preparing their students for engineering practice.
