The Many Homes of Engineering Education Research: Historical Analysis of PhD Dissertations
Johannes Strobel (larger team Demetra Evangelou, Ruth Streveler, & Karl Smith)

Engineering education is portrayed as an emerging discipline and several new PhD programs have been established. While it is undisputed that engineering education is currently forming itself as a discipline, there are indications that there is a longer history of research that address specifically engineering education topics than commonly perceived (in this presentation as evidenced by Ph.D. theses).  The aim of this project is to provide insights into the history of research in engineering education, by analyzing Ph.D. dissertations, which undertook engineering education research. This on-going study employs bibliometric and scientometric methodologies, developed in the field of information and library science.  This will be an interactive session, in which early findings will be presented and participants are invited to shape the future of this project.
