Engineering educators need to rise to such challenges by making sure our engineering graduates are able to analyze the causes of such problems and design products, systems and processes to address them. This can only be accomplished by ensuring that engineering students are required to learn, as part of their curriculum, to identify needs of the community and use a design thinking process to provide real solutions to these needs. Many of you are aware that IUCEE is trying this approach in a small way in partnership with EPICS at Purdue University.
This is what OBE “Outcomes Based Education”, the guiding approach for ABET and NBA, is all about. Ensuring that engineering graduates have the technical and professional skills to enable them to become leaders and entrepreneurs while addressing such challenges. This will also make them more “employable”.
