We are exploring different aspects of engineering education with a focus on engineering leadership education. Through these studies we seek to establish methodologies and evidence on engineering leadership education, thereby guiding what to teach (content), how it is best taught (pedagogy), and how the teaching and learning should be measured (evaluation). Current studies are examining the instruction of team effectiveness and the acquisition of competencies through research-based graduate education.
