Examining the Impact of Mentoring Experiences on Leadership Development and Career Decision-Making among Engineering Graduate Student Mentors

Professional Engineers spent over half of their working time doing leadership and other professional skill-related tasks. Engineering graduates, however, reported lacking leadership competencies to their employers’ expectations. They then must acquire these skills on the job to fill the gaps. Educators have called for innovative ways to introduce and impart leadership concepts to engineering students at all levels that do not further burden the already dense curriculum. Studies suggested that mentoring opportunities can provide an alternative approach for learning and practicing leadership.

On Anti-Blackness in Engineering Education: How White Professors are Spirit-Murdering Black Students

Black Americans have a lineage of excellence in engineering that pre-dates our American chattel slavery, yet this legacy of ingenuity is suppressed within engineering education in the United States. Even as institutions and organizations within the engineering education community promote campaigns to take action against racism, the violence of whiteness remains unacknowledged.

Understanding research - and researchers: Launching Season 5 of the Engineering Education Research Briefs podcast

Textbooks often depict the research enterprise as occurring in a linear fashion. But when we actually conduct research, we find something very different happens. There are fits and starts and lots of soul searching. We have to find our way through an uncharted landscape. But all people see is the end product, when the research is explained in a tidy paper. What is it like to undergo the research journey?

Taking Stock: Appreciating the State of the School of Engineering Education

In this annual address on the State of the School, it is customary for us to reflect on where we have come, where we are now, and where we are going. This extraordinary pandemic year – more accurately spanning 18 months and counting – has brought us challenge, change, uncertainty and adversity that reveal much to us about who we are.

When Do Students Find Their Graduation Major in Engineering?

An engineering workforce is essential for society to meet our current and future challenges. By understanding how students find their graduation majors in engineering, we can improve in-major retention and graduation rates so that students find their engineering graduation discipline quickly without having multiple major changes during their undergraduate studies.
