In this paper, articles in full body of JEER in Korea and JEE in U.S. were classified into two categories- Research area and Key words-to endeavor a comparative study of the engineering education research(EER) topics and their temporal changes. In the recent 4 year term, 'Accreditation of Engineering Education' and 'Courses & Curriculum' were the most common key words appearing in JEER and 'Researches on EER' and 'Learner's Factor' in JEE. If we put curriculum/teaching materials/teaching as the input elements and learning/assessment as the output elements for education achievement, JEE demonstrates that many of the research topics have shifted from input to output in the recent years, while JEER research is in the transient stage.
