Comparing Different Types of Professional Practitioner Engagement in an Integrated Design Engineering Degree

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Design engineering education is a process that needs to happen in close collaboration with industry, since the latter is the final destination of most graduates in their professional life. For this reason, early engagement with ‘real’ practitioners is crucial to benefit educational outcomes. Although much research has been done comparing the skills and approaches of engineering design students and professional practitioners little research to date has looked in detail at how this engagement affects the educational process and outcomes. In this study, we evaluate the impact professional practitioners had on the learning process and the delivery of learning outcomes for a number of units in a specific Integrated Design Engineering (IDE) course.
