Ritz, John M. – Journal of Technology Education, 2009
To develop meaningful instructional programs for technology education, goals need to be in place to direct the outcomes of curriculum development and teaching. Goals are program terminal outcomes that focus curriculum writers or teachers who structure content for learners. Goals provide direction so content can be delivered for long-term impact to…

Lackey, Ellen – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2011
The purpose of this paper is to discuss the implementation of an industrial-based case study as the basis for a design project for the Spring 2009 Introduction to Mechanical Design Course at the University of Mississippi. Course surveys documented the lack of student exposure in classes to the types of projects typically experienced by engineers…

Qun, Dominic Koh Jing; Ling, Tan Aik – Teaching Science, 2019
According to the World Economic Forum (2016), "more than one third (36%) of all jobs across all industries" (p.21) need problem-solving as a key skill. Trilling and Fadel (2009) noted the shift from industrial to knowledge-based economies, requiring students not only to possess content knowledge but also have skills that enable them to…

Priest, John W.; Roessler, Richard T. – Rehabilitation Literature, 1983
The authors stress the role of the multidisciplinary team in vocational rehabilitation, particularly the industrial engineer, in performing job analysis and workplace design to accommodate disabled persons in industry. Steps to effective job adaptation are charted, and methods of job analysis are discussed. (Author/MC)

Izraeli, Dafna; And Others – Journal of Vocational Behavior, 1979
Tests the hypothesis that students self-selecting themselves for different occupational fields differ in relevant values and interests. Industrial engineers have different work values and images of their subfield than other engineering specialists. In terms of type of student selecting engineering, the profession cannot be treated as an…

Babatope A., Alabadan; Samuel, Taiwo M.; Ajewole, Philip I.; Anyanwu, Oluwakemi M. – International Journal of Evaluation and Research in Education, 2020
The demand for engineering education and graduates is increasing daily because the current service and technological designs are unable to meet the needs of the society and the expected dramatic increase in the future. The emerging skill gap requires a shift in the type of expertise required of young professionals that will be needed to…

Kutnick, Peter; Chan, Rosanna Yuen-Yan; Chan, Cecilia Ka Yuk; Good, David; Lee, Betty Pok-Yee; Lai, Veronica Ka Wai – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2018
Many post-industrial societies have seen a decline in secondary school students' aspirations to become an engineer. Hong Kong (HK) is a post-industrial region within a larger industrialising society where no current study identifies engineering aspirations of secondary students. A representative sample of HK (3724 students/23 schools) explored…

Rigler, Kenny – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2017
The first steps in the engineering design process are to identify and define the problem (Eide, Jenison, Mashaw, & Northup, 2001). The primary purpose of this article is to highlight the problem that has existed for the past three decades (a disconnect between industrial educators and proponents of technological literacy) and to make a…

Mejlgaard, Niels; Ryan, Thomas Kjeldager – Research Evaluation, 2017
In the context of growing societal demand and interdependency, universities need to prioritize their "third mission" activities and balance them against core functions. Individual researchers too are faced with multiple external constituencies and various mechanisms for interaction. The degree, target, and mode of their involvement with…

Anshelm, Jonas – Bulletin of Science, Technology & Society, 2010
In 1956, the Swedish Parliament decided to invest in a national nuclear energy program. The decision rested on the conviction that it would be in the interest of the nation to use the assets of natural uranium, the advanced reactor technology, and the expertise on nuclear physics that the country had at its disposal. Since the decision concerned…
