February 2018

The American Association for Engineering Education has published the third of its four reports in the Transforming Undergraduate Education in EngineeringĀ (TUEE) project.

After the first report focused on what key knowledge, skills, and abilities the industry expects to demand of engineers in coming years, and the second report focused on studentsĀ“ views on the strengths and weaknesses of the current curriculum, this third report on Women participation and retention shows the main elements of an action plan focused on reducing the gender gap in engineering. The Phase IV workshop will focus on Narrowing the list of knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSAs) identified in Phase I to a set of competencies that can and should be addressed through changes in curriculum/pedagogy in academia and determining how professional societies can assist in affecting curricular and pedagogical changes within the constraints and mechanisms of academic environments.
