The American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE), a peer-to-peer organization, surveys teachers, professionals, and engineering students about the factors driving their career success.The poll will only take about 6-7 minutes and will be open until May 25th. Your responses will only be reported as part of a group and individual responses will remain anonymous. The first 100 respondents to completethe poll by May 25 will be eligible to receive a $10 Amazon gift card.
ASEE seeks to understand how the organization can best serve its various constituents – engineering faculty, graduate students and staff as well as faculty from other disciplines who contribute to the education of future engineers. They also seek to serve employers of engineers and those seeking to otherwise contribute to their acquisition of the knowledge, skills and abilities required for their optimal professional practice.
ASEE is 129 years old and uniquely covers all engineering disciplines. ASEE is the society of academic engineers and the voice of academic engineering. Although their membership ranges from pre-college to lifelong learning, their core membership are college/university engineering professors. But their membership is broad and also encompasses everyone who influences engineering education, including faculties of science, humanities, and liberal arts, as well as student affairs professionals, librarians, and university administrators. In addition to individual members, they have institutional members which comprise over 80% of engineering programs in the United States as well as a growing number outside the United States. Given this breadth, they are concerned with the full range of academic concerns, including teaching, research in engineering education, technical research in engineering, and services.
ASEE’s vision is “an excellent and widely accessible education that empowers engineering students and professionals to create a better world”. This means that ASEE exists to help members as engineering educators and stakeholders produce students who have the highest potential, are career-ready, have diverse identities and perspectives, are able to innovate creative solutions to the world’s toughest problems, are able to anticipate and understand the impact of their solutions on technical and social systems, and are able to adapt and lead in changing technical and social environments fast.
ASEE’s mission is to “advance innovation, excellence and access, at all levels of training for the engineering profession”. They encourage excellence – in teaching, in research, in public service and in practice. They exercise global leadership in these areas. They provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and the sharing of information, and promote the technological education of society as a whole – of crucial importance in our increasingly technological world. And, they provide high quality programs, products and services to their members.
