With support from NSF, we launched a series of meetings to develop a new strategy for undergraduate engi­neering education that meets the needs of industry in the 21st century. The project aims to produce a clear understanding of the qualities engineering graduates should possess and to promote changes in curricula, pedagogy, and academic culture needed to instill those qualities in the coming generation of engineers. ASEE, in consultation with NSF, envisions a four-phase, multi-year sequence of meetings – the final one being a large workshop in 2018 – that ultimate­ly will produce a flexible framework for transforming the undergraduate engineering experience.

Phase I: Synthesizing and Integrating Industry Perspectives
The series’ first meeting was designed to hear the “voice of the primary customer – employers.” This two-day workshop brought together representa­tives of industry and academia in an intensive exploration of the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed in engineering today and in the coming years.
