Beddoes, Kacey – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2022
While the importance of school-to-work transitions is increasingly recognised, little research has examined the roles that gender plays in those transitions. This is a problem because of the higher rates of attrition of newcomer women engineers than newcomer men engineers. To address that gap in research, this article addresses the questions:…

Naukkarinen, Johanna; Bairoh, Susanna – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2022
Formation of professional identity is a process where individuals attempt to bring together the social expectations set for them as professionals and their own interests and values. The cultural landscape of engineering is masculine in various ways, which can be challenging especially for female engineers who need to match the cultural…

Craps, Sofie; Pinxten, Maarten; Knipprath, Heidi; Langie, Greet – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2022
This study contributes to the current research in career and professional identity development in that it developed a validated competency-based framework to enhance professional and self-awareness of future engineers. Through a mixed-method design, key competencies were identified for three professional roles for early career engineers.…

Lowe, David; Goldfinch, Tom; Kadi, Anthony; Willey, Keith; Wilkinson, Tim – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2022
The professional formation of new graduates and their ability to perform well at the start of their career depends on the development of both technical skills and professional competencies. Whilst the latter aspects have become increasingly considered within engineering programs, they are often learnt within an academic context rather than a…

Flening, Elias; Asplund, Fredrik; Edin Grimheden, Martin – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2022
Professional skills have long been perceived as lacking in junior engineers. Adopting a social realist theoretical framework of knowledge in practice, a hypothesis-based survey study of early career engineers' perceptions of engineering expertise was conducted. It investigated a professional skills readiness difference between initial career…

Johri, Aditya – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2022
Increasing digitisation of engineering and social practices has altered the relationship between formal schooling and development of expertise for professional engineering work. What does the development of expertise look like when knowledge is generated and shared at an accelerated pace due to shifts in technology? In this paper, I present case…

Zhu, Jiabin; Hu, Yu; Li, Yike; Zhang, Zhinan; Li, Wanqi – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2022
Internationally, challenges were raised towards engineering education concerning the industry's widespread questioning of the lack of practical skills of engineering graduates. Scholars in engineering educational research have tried to better understand professional engineers' practices so as to inform engineering education. Concerning the lack of…

Chance, Shannon; Direito, Inês; Mitchell, John – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2022
The term 'global responsibility' projects a holistic sense of ethics, sustainability, and obligation. To achieve the long-term viability of human life on Earth, civil engineering must be conducted in increasingly responsible ways, and civil engineers must value and enact global responsibility in their work. Interviews conducted with nine civil…

Leandro Cruz, Mariana; Saunders-Smits, Gillian N. – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2022
To assist in resolving the perceived lack of transversal competencies (TCs) of engineering graduates by industry, this study investigates the characteristics of transforming an existing industry TC instrument for use in engineering education. The instrument consists of 36 nuanced sub-competencies with the corresponding definitions and descriptive…

Asplund, Fredrik; Flening, Elias – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2022
The transition from engineering student to early career engineer is often difficult as not all skills that constitute effective engineering practice are formally taught. Work placements are suggested as a solution by providing opportunities to learn skills that academia is unable to teach. However, academic requirements for skills such as research…

Barak, Miri; Usher, Maya – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2022
The study goal was to assess the innovation level of engineering students' team projects and to examine the relationships between project innovation and team heterogeneity in two online environments. Applying a two-stage mixed methods research design, the qualitative and quantitative data were obtained by interviews with experts in engineering…

Picard, Cyril; Hardebolle, Cécile; Tormey, Roland; Schiffmann, Jürg – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2022
Engineering accreditation bodies express a strong consensus that in addition to technical and scientific skills, engineering education also needs to promote the development of professional skills. In general, team-based projects are considered to be valuable approaches to develop such skills and have been extensively added to engineering…

Voordijk, Hans; Vahdatikhaki, Farid – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2022
Training based on Virtual Reality (VR) has reached a level of maturity that renders it applicable in many industries. By moving through learner interaction and representational fidelity, from navigable to interactable VR learning environments, the relationships between trainees, VR technology, and the world that trainees experience change. These…

Warfvinge, Per; Löfgreen, Jennifer; Andersson, Karim; Roxå, Torgny; Åkerman, Christina – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2022
The COVID-19 pandemic caused a global disruption to higher education, especially in engineering education, where many teaching and learning activities are difficult or impossible to conduct online. This study examines the changes in the students' experiences of this disruption using a 26-item process-oriented course experience questionnaire (CEQ)…

Hallberg, Peter; Ölvander, Johan – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2022
In times of rapid transformation of society in general and domains of technology in particular, questions are raised on how to effectively organise higher engineering education. As a response, this study examines the curriculum composition of eleven engineering programs to investigate curriculum nativeness, a novel approach for assessing…
