Abstract

This paper presents three critical elements needed for any successful US program seeking to establish excellence in engineering education through professional qualification (and recognition) of faculty teaching in higher education. Building on concepts well grounded in the literature, the critical elements are: support by a nationally respected society or academy, utilization of qualifying criteria or standards at several levels, and flexibility in implementation across a variety of university administrative structures and cultures.
