Abstract

As practitioners of engineering education, reflecting on our profession, we propose the question: Can philosophy of engineering education improve the practice of engineering education? It is intended to seek through discussion answers to such questions as - Is a philosophy of engineering education distinct from a philosophy of education? What are the "questions" of philosophy of engineering education? How would a philosophy of engineering education differ from the philosophy of science education, and a philosophy of medical education? Is a philosophy of liberal education necessary in a philosophy of engineering education or a re they antithetical? To what extent is a philosophy of education necessary for the design of the curriculum?
