Assessing Engineering Student Attitudes About Cognition Due to Project-Based Curriculum

Document Type

Conference Proceeding

Publication Date



In recent years, a substantial amount of research has been presented on project-based learning for educating engineers.[1, 2] It has been observed that this approach fosters a deeper learning and understanding of engineering concepts as opposed to the traditional lecture-based course structure. In addition, research has documented the prevalence of "Ill-Structured" problems that engineers face in their professional lives.[3] Posing these types of "problems" in an academic environment would better prepare students for higher achievement after graduation, but adoption is sporadic.
