Abstract

The decline in interest among U.S. students in engineering programs of study, which has the potential to severely affect our technology based society, has motivated the formation of a team of engineers and psychologists to examine the psychological foundations of effective engineering education. The team's work in progress is focused on a rigorous examination of the cognitive psychology and motivational psychology aspects of engineering education.
