Engineering Education Research

Engineering education research requires the application of interdisciplinary knowledge, skills, and techniques from engineering, design, education, and social sciences. Research in engineering education utilizes quantitative, qualitative, and mixed-methods approaches. The following resources provide guidance on approaches to engineering education as well as specific information on how to design research, collect and analyze data, and connect ideas to conceptual and theoretical frameworks.
