The research element of my work is focused on understanding the mechanisms that can both support and enhance the capacity of engineering students to become successful engineers, develop strong design skills and take leadership roles in both engineering and society.
Since 2013, I have produced over forty (40) proceedings papers, presentations or workshops that have been conducted at various conferences, with audiences ranging from local to international. The topics have been varied, with the primary emphasis in two areas:
- Learning outcome assessment (LOA) and curriculum improvement for engineering programs.
- Studies related to engineering leadership and the professional skills associated with the complementary studies aspects of the engineering curriculum.
Additional activity is underway as is it relates to professional skills as they are developed through engineering design components of the curriculum, and the development engineering leadership identity as engineers progress through their careers.
