Abstract

A general education course is different from a major course in an engineering college. Therefore, they influence a learning outcomes according to their forms and contents. In particular, an engineering college in korea is open to argument against a general education course. Because a general education course has to observe the criterion of ABEEK. Consequently, the purpose of this study is to compare general education courses of engineering colleges in USA. For it, this study analyzes the completion method and academic area of a general education course. In result, this study suggests the property and implication of a general education course in an engineering college.
