Abstract:
While a wide spectrum of stakeholders in engineering education have called for accelerating the pace and substance of curriculum renewal, many challenges to reform exist. Advancing effective curriculum renewal requires a combination of well-articulated goals, faculty and administrative leadership, resources and the continuous evaluation of progress. Efforts to implement a curriculum focused on developing world class engineers are described. Evaluations of the impact of the changes in the curriculum on student perceptions of their educational experiences focused on world class engineer goals are discussed.
