  • 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 examined the educational objectives of selected colleges of engineering in Korea and other countries such as the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and Hong Kong. Among the common educational objectives of the colleges of engineering in Korea are the supply of manpower with professional abilities, an education to enhance the basic competence of engineers, and the equipment of high-level educational environments for quality engineering education. These emphases are in line with the global trends shown in the cases of various countries, where "leadership" and "innovation" are given much weight, and qualities such as "creativity", "specialty", and "service" are stressed. The analysis on the educational objectives of the selected colleges of engineering listed in this study may serve as a substantial basis for setting future goals and making decisions for quality engineering education in the colleges of engineering.

  • The purpose of this study was to develop the character index instrument for engineering college students. For this, literature review and survey were used. The survey was conducted with 275 engineering college students in D university. Finally, draft of character index instrument for engineering college students was developed with 10 factors and 47 questions. Based on the results, the investigation of engineering college students' needs is necessary to conduct for developing character education programs. And it is necessary to research validity of the draft of character index instrument for engineering college students. It is necessary to develop various convergence subjects by experiencing the character substantially for engineering college students.

  • The purpose of this research is to investigate the relationship among self-efficacy, engineering interest and social support on adjustment to college and learning persistence in first year engineering college students. The participants were 74 freshman of engineering college students, SPSS and SmartPLS were used to analyze the data. The key findings revealed were as follows: First, self-efficacy, engineering interest and social support had a significant influence on adjustment to college. Second, engineering interest and adjustment to college had a significant influence on learning persistence. This research suggested the implications for adjustment to college and learning persistence in engineering education.

  • The 7th National Education Process, implemented in 2004, features student-oriented, selective educational programs with a wide range of optional subjects. In 2005, reflecting this revised National Education Process, the College Scholastic Ability Test began allowing individual students to choose the subjects for examination they would like to take. As a result, the deviations of the college freshmen's academic achievements in some subjects have noticeably widened. This study shows academic abilities of the students on some subjects by comparing the results of 2008 College Scholastic Ability Test with that of the Basic Academic Ability Evaluation Test for freshmen in engineering college of Hongik university. Lastly, this paper presents some improvement plans in order to better accommodate students with academic achievement levels lower than what is expected by the university.

  • "The engineering education program for environmental intention and value creation" has been executed from 2008 to 2010 in Suzuka National College of Technology, which program was promoted as "Good Practice for Education" by Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Japan. "Eco-car project" is one of these practical ecology/environment education programs. The project's members have been learning and researching the environmental managements by the process of design, manufacturing, and assembly of solar car, highly effective fuel consumption car (Eco-run car), electric vehicle and fuel-cell car. Also this project was supported by some professional experts of the local industries and community. The students learned the actual industrial technique, the engineering management and the structure of local industries by this project. In this paper, the environmental intention engineering design education with local industry collaboration is introduced.

  • In general, lecture evaluation has been used in most universities as an important criterion to evaluate quality of education. This study is exploratory research on the predictors that determine lecture evaluation in college of engineering to give practical implications for improvement of engineering education. For the exploration of predictors of lecture evaluation, the data of lecture evaluation in A College of Engineering located in the metropolitan area was used, and Decision Tree Analysis was utilized as an analysis method. As a result, the characteristics of students turned out to be the most distinct predictor comparing with those of course and instructor at lecture evaluation in college of engineering. That is, as various elements other than teaching competency influence lecture evaluation in college of engineering, it is necessary to be more careful in evaluating quality of lecture or teaching competence. Thus, a follow-up study should be conducted to adjust the influence by the predictors that instructors can hardly control.

  • Recently, the number of applicants for the engineering college is gradually decreased all over the nation. Additionally, the concerns of fall of freshman scholastic ability are raised due to the incomplete high school education. Moreover, the inferior circumstance and supports drive local universities into a corner. Therefore, the local universities endeavor in order to improve the quality of basic engineering education, and study the countermeasure against the crisis. In this paper, we derive several ideas in order to enhance the basic engineering education qualities. And the enhancement plans for the basic engineering education are proposed. Results in this paper will be helpful for engineering college to enhance the basic engineering education as reference materials.
