Information about engineering education is highly relevant for improving communication between professors, researchers and students in engineering schools, institutions, laboratories and industry. Technological change is fundamental to the development of education systems. Engineering Education emphasises curriculum development, pedagogy and didactic aspects of engineering education, covering relevant aspects from more classical engineering courses such as mechanical, manufacturing, industrial, chemical, environmental, civil and systems courses, to more contemporary courses including nano-engineering and bioengineering along with information on sustainable development in the context of engineering education.
