Countering Trend, Engineering Education from the Ground Up

Abstract:
Purdue University is taking steps to stem the decline in high school students' interest in careers in engineering. The university's Board of Trustees voted today to create a new Department of Engineering Education to increase younger students' interest in engineering while researching ways students learn engineering concepts. "As emerging fields such as nanotechnology and biotechnology grow, it will become even more imperative for universities like Purdue to understand how best to educate the new generations of engineers, both on our campus and before they enter Purdue."
