  • We analyzed the relationship based on the complex system between engineering writing in accreditation program and engineering education accreditation system and studied an effective engineering writing education system for engineering education in this paper. By introducing accreditation system, the engineering education system keeps continuously an emergent behavior and builds the new system. In this point of view, this research proposed an situated learning system and introduction of writing portfolio. As a result, we ascertain this proposed way makes up writing skill of students. We think this discussion will be a chance to explore a new writing education system in engineering education.

  • Due to the development of science and technology, diversity of fusion technologies has become a major concern. Especially the application of the convergence education became necessary in the curriculum of engineering department. The purpose of this paper is to extract characteristics of convergence education among engineering majors and to present a model of applicable convergence education. The researchers collected studies of past 15 years in domestic and international journals in related themes. Academic research information systems, DBpia, e-article, Academic Search Complete were used for keyword searches. 43 Korean papers and 25 international papers were analyzed for the study. The results showed that the convergence education models for college of engineering can be classified into the three types: the cooperative convergence, multidisciplinary convergence, and transdisciplinary convergence. Based on the results, a convergence education model is suggested for the schools of engineering in Korea.

  • The purpose of this study is to investigate and to display circumstances about importance issues connected with various publication data and engineering ethic principle. It is an investigation study about circumstance and actual conditions of engineering ethics education that is spoken by engineering ethics or engineer ethics on present Japan. Engineering ethics principle, or engineer ethics education is continued until present appearing in the 1980s by formal course of study in the case of American university. But, in the case of Japan, along with appearance of JABEE (Japanese Accreditation Board for engineering education), engineering ethics education for engineer is proceeded very intensively. At present, the purpose of engineering ethics education is heard on important engineering literary category so much so that can emphasize very as basic attitude to prepare everybody if it is a person who is to be an engineer. The present condition and circumstance of Japanese engineering ethics education analysis may become good information in the beginning step on ethics principle education of engineering our country.

  • The purpose of this study was to analyze needs of convergence education on engineering and human resource development (HRD) for students in H university for increasing creative problem solving skills. To achieve the research purpose, needs analysis was conducted to students through in-depth interview about students' project experience for graduation in H university. The research finding shows that the converged areas between engineering and HRD are: connecting technologies to social context, problem solving skills, leadership, communication skills, and teamwork skills. Based on the derived five converged areas, objectives and method of the engineering-HRD convergence education are discussed. As an effective teaching and learning method, a problem-based learning and a project method are suggested. Finally, considerations for successful implementation of the engineering-HRD convergence education are discussed.

  • The purpose of this study is to analyze middle and high school technology teachers' recognition and educational need about engineering education. For this, we surveyed secondary school technology teachers. The result of this study is as follow. First, most technology teachers perceive that engineering contents are lack in technology education, therefore they recognize the needs of reinforcement of engineering contents. Second, most technology teachers perceive that present technology subject does not give positive affect to students for their own career selection on engineering field. Furthermore, they perceive that if it contained the contents of engineering in technology education, students would experience creative design and problem solving process. Third, most technology teachers perceive that they are able to teach engineering in technology education and they need the change of national curriculum and the development of engineering program contents. Fourth, they perceive that the 7~9 grade is the best grade to start to study engineering in elementary and secondary school. Fifth, they perceive that 'design', 'problem solving' and 'creative thinking' are the priority of educational needs of teaching ability and knowledge about engineering. Sixth, they perceive that the aerospace engineering, the electrical engineering, the electronic engineering, the mechanical engineering, the computer engineering and the environmental engineering are the priority of educational needs of teaching knowledge about engineering fields.

  • This paper deals with the model of natural sciences and engineering's convergence education. Recently, convergence education's necessary is needed since the most of new products are designed and produced based on the convergence technology. But our country's education system is keeping existing education process. This make industrial world undurable to employ the current graduated students. Also in view of educational world, they have no proper convergence education model for their students. In this paper, to solve the non-existing convergence education model, we derive the a few convergence education model and list up their model each. This result will be helpful for the introducer of the convergence education system.

  • This paper reviews the general education curriculum in engineering colleges which are accredited or prepare to be accredited in Korea. And it researches the relation of the learning outcome of general education and course assessment. Most of engineering colleges usually operate core curriculum. They provided engineering students few specific general education courses if anything. Engineering students evaluated the outcome of the general education courses less than major courses. It is necessary to develop new general education courses for engineer like as the management for engineering students or leadership program Also the faculties teaching the general education courses need to develop new learning method and materials, which help students to achieve soft skills.

  • The needs for change in the traditional on engineering education system in Korea have been evoked since 1998 when the Accreditation Board for Engineering Education of Korea (ABEEK) was about to be established. The engineering college at Yeungnam University has been one of the most active members in the Korean higher education institutions which participated in the ABEEK movement at the earliest stage. This paper reports the efforts made by Yeungnam University in preparing for the trial accreditation of engineering programs for the first time in Korea. The reformation and restructuring were made in many areas in order to establish the self-improving circulative engineering education system. The accreditation criteria were thoroughly investigated, and reforms were made in individual programs based on the critical assessment of existing system. The contents of educational reform and the experience during the trial accreditation process are summarized and discussed.

  • This paper examines the academic basis, current status, and future directions of liberal education for engineers as consilience education. After paying attention to the lists of liberal education for engineers including history of technology, technology and society, engineering ethics, economics of technology, management of technology, and technology policy, I found the academic basis of liberal education for engineers in science and technology studies or innovation studies. And then I monitored how liberal education for engineers is managed focusing on the case of Pusan National University and introduced new attempts on liberal education for engineers in other universities in Korea. Lastly, the future directions for the development of liberal education for engineers were suggested such as the strengthening of lecturers' expertise, the reconstruction of engineering education course, and the promotion of relevant academic associations' cooperation.
