Future Engineering Education
Explore cutting edge research and best practices for project-based learning to support engineering students’ transition to industry
This Vertically Integrated Project team will research and develop project-based learning at NYU Tandon School of Engineering. This team will explore cutting edge research and best practices for project-based learning to support engineering students’ transition to industry.
The team will research engineering design education and investigate existing project-based learning experiences. Trends in the future of engineering education will be explored. The team will propose strategies for improving outcomes of students involved in project-based learning.
The initial project will use a survey to understand the impact of design reflection exercises on first-year students’ engineering design self-efficacy. The following studies will be used as references for this project:
