Joint International IGIP-SEFI Annual Conference 2010 | Year: 2010

Engineering education institutes are challenged to improve their professional practice as the engineering profession is in continuous development and at the same time student enrollment is decreasing [1]. Therefore, engineering education has to adapt continuously to professional standards in terms of outputs and make an utmost effort to increase the attractiveness of higher engineering education. Consequently, universities need competent staff and they will have to research their own educational practice to contribute to the development of Engineering Education. After discussing these issues in the meetings of the Netherlands IGIP-NMC, we have identified the need for a post-experience, MSc Engineering Education as an instrument for career development of staff members. As we think that the need for an MSc Engineering Education is not a unique Dutch issue, we want to propose the development of a European MSc on Engineering Education within the IGIP-SEFI community to meet future partners for development and cooperation.
