M548B·Integrating Engineering & Liberal Education
Technical · Liberal Education/Engineering & Society Division

Session Description

At the core of the mission of ASEE’s Liberal Education/Engineering and Society Division is the goal of integrating technical education and liberal education (including humanities and the contextual disciplines) in a manner that upholds engineering as a true profession. This is a perennial challenge that has long occupied those within our division, and the papers within this session continue to describe new approaches and initiatives designed to advance course content and curricula in this direction. During the discussion that follows, we invite others to contribute to the dialogue by describing efforts at other institutions, the challenges they face, and the outcomes achieved.
