Assessing Engineering Students’ Understanding of Social Responsibility from Undergraduate and Graduate Education into Professional Life
In this NSF-funded study, quantitative and qualitative methods are used to understand how engineering and social responsibility are connected and valued by students at various stages of their college career, employees in the engineering workforce, and employers at engineering firms.
Collaborative Research: Gender Diversity, Identity and EWB-USA
Diversity in engineering is vital to the sustainability and advancement of the profession. EWB-USA successfully attracts a roughly gender-balanced membership, despite the gender-unbalanced profession. This research sought to understand why these trends exist by understanding and comparing EWB-USA members to engineers not involved in the organization, including the personality traits, motivations, gains, and expected career outcomes.
