  • The Korean Society for Engineering Education (KSEE) has been conducted scholarship meeting, workshop, and publicated academic journal, Engineering Education Research, since 1998. Kim Jin-soo analysed 'Engineering Education Research' on methods of research and contents. However, there are an in crease in quantity since then, it needed to analyse and arrange. This study analysed all 417 papers which were published from 1998 to 2012. The conclusion is as in the following. First, the number of collections published has been increasing up to 6 per year. 75.5% of the lead author's institution are universities, and Engineering Education Innovation Center researcher has been increasing steadily up to 8.9%. Research about Engineering Education Methods and Programs are being mostly studied. Apart from classified field in this, a study on the psychological characteristics of technology students are being steadily researched. In papers, the literature/development research method is used the most frequently (54.6%), the research study (39.9%) is the next and the experimental research method (5.5%) is followed by. Since 2006, study using the experimental research method is the growing lately. Second, characteristic of study between institution of lead author, a field of study, a number of study and methods of research by cross analyzing. The result is as in the following. In case of university and Engineering Education Innovation Center researcher studied much more about Engineering Education Methods and programs, research laboratory researcher tend to study about Engineering Educational Philosophy and Policy. Also, foreign researcher tend to introduce Engineering Education Example and Lecture. In case of university and foreign researcher used the literature/development research method frequently. Engineering Education Innovation Center and research laboratory and school researcher used the research study much more. There is no difference between a field of study and research methods. Finally, research strategies and new direction for improving the engineering education journal's papers at the section of discussion and suggestion were suggested.

  • The goal of this study was to analyze the research trends of engineering education in elementary and secondary education. To accomplish this goal, this study analyzed the journal papers by 'published year', 'research topic', 'research subject', 'research method' and 'related school subject'. Followings are the results of this study. First, regarding the published year, the studies related to the elementary and secondary school level engineering education had been conducted 1 to 3 pieces intermittently from 1995 to 2009. And the number of studies are more than 5 pieces after 2010. Second, regarding the research topic, the number of study followed by 'investigation for current status', 'tendency analysis', 'development of teaching method or model', 'verification of teaching method/models' effect'. Third, regarding the research subject, the number of study followed by 'student', 'literature', 'professor', 'teacher'. Fourth, regarding the research method, the number of study followed by 'survey research' and 'literature research', 'qualitative research', 'experimental research' and 'integrated research'. Fifth, regarding the related subject, the number of study followed by 'science', 'technology', 'mathematics', 'practical arts'. Based on the results of this study, there are the needs for further studies to establish theoretical foundation on the engineering content elements in elementary and secondary school level, analyze on related variables and effects, develop engineering assessment instrument, use a variety of research methods, and conduct study on the applications of engineering in math subject.

  • This study aimed to analyze the current trends and future issues of the creativity development research in the Korean engineering education. The analysis led to categorizing the previous research topics into the following five domains: (i)systems and media (ii)instructional strategies and methodologies (iii)curriculum (iv)evaluation and (v) learner characteristics. The analysis further deduced more detailed sub-domains from each of the five domains. In addition, this study investigated publication frequencies of each domain and sub-domains and grasped specific flows of past research topics. Finally, based upon the analysis, this study drew implications and ramifications for creativity development studies in the Korean engineering education, elucidated future issues and refined upcoming research agendas. It is hoped that this research will articulate the present status of the studies that deal with creative education catering to engineering students and help set paths for future research.

A Search for Directions in Engineering Education Development in a Knowledge-Based Society in Terms of Engineering Ethics Education: An Exploration of Ethics Across the Living Beyond Ethics Across the Curriculum (지식기반사회 공학교육의 발전방향 탐색: EAC를 넘어 EAL로)

  • The purpose of this research is to search for directions in engineering education development in a knowledge-based society in terms of 'engineering ethics educatio'. Engineering ethics education, having been recognized as an inter-disciplinary research field between engineering and philosophy, is a field that has been a major issue in countries that execute engineering education accreditation. And engineering ethics education has been a peculiar research field focused on EAC(Ethics across the Curriculum). Therefore, this study has deduced several results by critically reviewing the extant EAC-related literatures. First, accomplishments by various researchers that may well quoted as the leader of engineering ethics study and education or the educational achievements of Kanazawa Institute of Technology in Japan are considerably substantial. However, the EAC discussions thus far still raise numerous barriers and unsolved issues. Second, the discussion of EAC thus far comprehends limitations such as a shortage of the recognition of inter-disciplinary study in the field of education and insufficient participation by education majors. Third, the engineering and philosophy field experts who have been leading EAC discussions have been pursuing integrated education courses either consciously or unconsciously. Fourth, EAC discussions may expand by again illuminating the intent of integrated education courses in terms of 'education and the study of education', and this new facet can be summed up with a new term, EAL, which stands for 'Ethics across the Living.'

Research Trends on Engineering Education in Korea and United States(I): Based on the Articles in JEER of Korea and JEE of U.S. (한국과 미국의 공학교육 연구주제의 동향 분석(I):한.미 공학교육학회지 투고논문을 중심으로)

  • 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.

  • Utsunomiya University started a 3-year project to develop an education program for postgraduate students to cultivate leadership spirits. The program is centered on a PBL in which each group of students is required to find an engineering or social problem themselves and start a project to solve the problem. Projects vary widely, from a straight product development to a summer program for children or local area development. Student groups are advised by senior engineers from industries. They give advice as to how a project should be managed and run, but will not give instructions. The PBL is compulsory for all students in the engineering master course students. The new education program also includes a series of lectures by engineers to show engineers' job, activities, and career in the industry. Internship programs are also provided, in which students will be given opportunities to actively apply their knowledge and skills to real engineering tasks offered by the industry. The students are expected to gain something more than just experiences.
