Undergraduate engineering program graduate outcomes, professional bodies, and lifelong learning : beginning the professional lifelong learning journey

conference contribution
posted on 06.12.2017, 00:00 by Patrick Keleher, Robin Howard
Professions acknowledge the value of innovative, responsive, and responsible self-directed workforces. In establishing students as reflective independent learners, university programs for undergraduates need to engage their students in intellectual enquiry and personal development, and to commence the process of developing their lifelong learning mindsets while furnishing them with mechanisms by which to do so. In accrediting undergraduate engineering programs, professional bodies seek to measure how effective a university's mechanisms are in producing engineers for the future. They do this by determining how competencies to achieve graduate attributes are developed, monitored, and assessed over the period of study.
