The primary area of expertise at the Aalborg Centre is Problem and Project Based Learning (PBL) and Engineering Education Research (EER) whereas Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) is a new area, still in the start-up phase. This comprehensive research program is based on PBL in Engineering Education (PBL-EE) research carried out at the Aalborg Centre.
Coupling these three research areas is unique and creates a very special platform for research on engineering and science education. Each of the areas forms their own research platform within the Aalborg Centre, however mostly of the research projects go across PBL, EER and ESD. Furthermore, the Aalborg Centre wishes to integrate more research issues to form its comprehensive research approach.
