Engineering Students' Use of Computer Assisted Learning (CAL)
Huczynski, Andrzej; Johnston, Scott Paul
European Journal of Engineering Education, v30 n2 p287-298 May 2005
This study examines the use of Computer Assisted Learning (CAL) by undergraduate engineering students studying a business and management course. Discussing both the relationship between management and engineering and CAL applied to engineering education, this study is based on a survey of 82 undergraduates and adopts a quantitative research methodology. The results suggest that engineering students generally displayed positive attitudes towards CAL and that increased use of CAL improved course performance where it matched exactly the course assessment format. On the basis of this survey, the authors go on to consider the use of CAL in teaching engineering students business and management subjects at university. (Contains 7 tables.)
