Engineering Education, Management, and Policy

New technologies are created by and for people. The Engineering Education, Management, and Policy Cluster focuses on how policies at the organizational, sectoral, national, and cross-national levels influence the life and work of the many and varied people who make up the engineering and technology workforce.

As researchers, we have two primary areas of concern:

  • Education:  We seek innovative approaches to educating and training the engineering and technology workforce and improved quantitative assessment of these essential missions. 
  • Global management:  We pursue a deeper understanding of the challenges of the global forms of organization, including distributed workgroups, in which the engineering and technology workforce will increasingly find itself.

 As educators, we deploy our personal curiosity more broadly to catalyze campus-wide interest in the many socio-technical challenges and opportunities that new and emerging technologies are creating for society.
