  • 1746 Accesses

The last three chapters have discussed answers to the second of the two questions central to the reform of engineering education: How can we do better at ensuring that students learn these skills? Integrated curriculum, design-implement experiences, integrated learning, and active and experiential learning are the main components of a reformed engineering education that better ensures that students reach the intended outcomes required of all engineering graduates. Implicit in the question “How can we do better . . . ” is an additional question: How do we know that we are doing better?
