Abstract

This is the second of four papers prepared for a special panel session of the National Collaborative Task Force on Engineering Graduate Education Reform. The paper formulates a creative approach and framework for postgraduate professional education that fosters continuous development of the U.S. engineering workforce concurrently with engineering practice for technological innovation. The framework integrates innovative project-based learning, progressive experience, self-directed learning, and graduate studies concurrently with engineering practice leading to the professional Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) for early career development of engineering leaders. The intent is to build clusters of postgraduate professional education across the country that strengthens industry's innovative capability for continuous technology development to enhance U.S. competitiveness.
