Here at the Aalborg Centre, we plan to hold several series of seminars with the aim of sharing experiences, projects and/or outcomes of research projects within the areas of PBL, Engineering Education Research and Education for Sustainable Development. The seminars aim to bring together national and international partners, researchers, educators, stakeholders for knowledge dissemination and outreach of these research and education activities.
The seminars are announced on our webpage and on social media, e.g. Facebook, and are open for everyone who might be interested.
Program of Research on Opportunities and Challenges in Engineering Education in Denmark (PROCEED) was funded by the Danish Strategic Research Council, during 2010‐2013.
This seminar is one of the final seminars presenting the results from the PROCEED project. The Aalborg Centre had the great pleasureof having one of the research advisors, Professor Cindy Atman, presenting her research on engineering design.
Also, PROCEED researchers presented partly the conceptual framework for understanding and developing engineering education and partly empirical results from a survey sent out to all engineering student in 2010.Special emphasis was on research results and what these indicated such as future directions of engineering education.
The overall objective of PROCEED had been to investigate how engineers and engineering educators are responding to the environmental, socio‐economic and scientific‐technological challenges facing their profession. It had been a strategic alliance among four universities in Denmark (Aalborg, Aarhus, Roskilde, and the Danish Technical University) and with international collaborators in the United States, the Netherlands, and Australia.
