Academic Pathways

ENGR-14 Introduction to Solid Mechanics Longboard Lab - Trucks

Some of our earliest work was focused on the four-year engineering college experience at a variety of U.S colleges and universities, as part of the Academic Pathways Study (APS), funded by the NSF Center for the Advancement of Engineering Education from 2003 to 2010. CAEE Co-PIs: Sheri Sheppard (Stanford), Cindy Atman (UW), Lorraine Fleming (Howard), Karl Smith (Purdue), Reed Stevens (Northwestern), & Ruth Streveler (Purdue).


In addition we looked in detail at the structures of engineering programs, exploring how well these structures support the development of professional engineers who are both problem solvers and problem framers.
