Engineering Education Research

Engineering Education Research (EER) is a rigorous, interdisciplinary field which is distinct from other engineering disciplines. Scholars in EER focus on and apply research methods from education, learning sciences, and social-behavioral sciences to address a variety of issues pertaining to: teaching and learning; college access and persistence; workforce development; and other issues critical to the success of the field of engineering. EER uses research processes similar to those used in traditional engineering disciplines, but it relies on different (equally rigorous) methods and mechanisms to achieve and measure impact in the field.
