Message to the Engineering Education Community
A message to the Department of Engineering Education community from department head Jennifer Case
The Department of Engineering Education has a unique role of preparing first-year and transfer students for matriculation into engineering disciplines and doctoral students for careers focused on improving how engineering is taught and learned.
Throughout innovative course offerings and degree programs, our students are inspired to pursue their interests while achieving their goals. The department actively promotes a culture of positive advising and faculty mentoring to support student development, advancement, and success.
Our Undergraduate Program
Our undergraduate program provides an innovative learning environment that serves all first-year and transfer engineering students. The program embraces a hands-on, minds-on approach, which leverages the latest advances in educational technologies to fully engage students in the learning experience.
To reach our learning goals, students are immersed in creative environments that allow them to discover and practice engineering problem-solving in a variety of contexts.
Our Graduate Program
Our graduate program emphasizes an ongoing dialogue between research and practice and a commitment to continuous curriculum enhancement. Many of our graduate students share their knowledge and gain professional experience by teaching and coordinating classes in our undergraduate program. Others engage in assessment projects and learn to apply their knowledge in non-university contexts. Our Ph.D. program is ideal for students who are drawn to research as a means to become leaders in engineering education.
