Engineering Education in Research-Intensive Universities
Alpay, E.; Jones, M. E.
European Journal of Engineering Education, v37 n6 p609-626 2012
The strengths and weaknesses of engineering education in research-intensive institutions are reported and key areas for developmental focus identified. The work is based on a questionnaire and session summaries used during a two-day international conference held at Imperial College London. The findings highlight several common concerns, such as the need to improve faculty motivation towards teaching, broaden the workplace skills of students, widen employer engagement in teaching and raise the relevance and value of scholarly activity in the discipline of engineering education. Examples of good practice used to address such issues are reported. (Contains 1 figure, 5 tables and 4 notes.)
