Reinventing the philosophy of graduate engineering education

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Contemporary graduate engineering education prototypically consists of the two elements of graduate research and graduate instruction. The implementation of the integrative philosophy to graduate engineering education does not call for the replacement of these two elements. What it mandates are the modification of the manner of conduct of graduate research and the deliberate widening of the conventionally narrow breadth of graduate engineering instruction. Two approaches are proposed: (1) the introduction of the team approach to graduate research; and (2) the inclusion of professional engineering studies in graduate instruction.
