Engineering Education

Scholarship in engineering education in BME primarily focuses on building the mindset and skills necessary for engineers to be effective at making a strong impact through their work, as well as innovative teaching and learning pedagogy. Much of this work has been supported by funding from the Kern Family Foundation through the Kern Entrepreneurial Engineering Network (KEEN).

Topics include

  • Entrepreneurial Mindset (EM) in Engineering Projects and Research
  • Active and Collaborative Learning Modules
  • Professional Skepticism
