International Conference on Engineering Education and Research


Bouzov Castle, Czech Republic, June 27-30, 2004






Accreditation bodies, such as the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), have changed their accreditation from input-driven to output-driven; i.e., the focus is on what the students are learning.  Coupled with that is an emphasis on assessment and evaluation of student learning and continuous improvement of the program. 


This session will provide examples of procedures that have been found to work, with particular emphasis on maintaining a reasonable workload on the faculty.  Of special interest is international accreditation.  Authors are encouraged to present their methods and systems and comment on their experiences. Transportability of engineering credentials, international collaboration and recent development in any part of the world, represent great interest.


Papers are solicited also broadly in the following areas:

Development of program outcomes and continuous improvement programs;

Program level assessment of student learning;

Developing and implementing a strategic plan;

Managing the workload associated with assessment.
