Diversity Issues in the Engineering Curriculum
Ihsen, Susanne; Gebauer, Sabrina
European Journal of Engineering Education, v34 n5 p419-424 Oct 2009
Teaching engineering studies students about diversity issues as part of the curriculum in engineering programs is an essential part of preparing the students for their professional life. By teaching them what this is and what it means for their (professional) lives sensitises them towards more responsibility. The idea is to connect diversity issues with technical subjects. Topics like technical development, human-machine communication or power management and other topics relevant to society are very suitable for this purpose.
