Engineering pathways project

  1. 1. Engineering Pathways Project Opening doors for the curious
  2. 2. Engineering: It’s fun once you get it “engineering has the highest rate of persistence and the lowest rate of inward migration” Center for the Advancement of Engineering Education http://www.engr.washington.edu/caee/CAEE_Briefs_PDFs/ PersistenceEngagementandMigration_Ohland_JEE08.pdf

  4. 4. We will build a pre-engineering pathwayto serve at least three types of studentsPSU studentscurious about engineering
  5. 5. We will build a pre-engineering pathwayto serve at least three types of studentsPSU students Students wanting tocurious about enroll in engineering engineering classes, but not quite ready for math and computing
  6. 6. We will build a pre-engineering pathwayto serve at least three types of studentsPSU students Students wanting to High schoolcurious about enroll in engineering students engineering classes, but not considering quite ready for math STEM and computing
  7. 7. Engineering has a highly structuredcurriculum for developing mastery
  8. 8. Pre-engineering pathway helps thecurious and the less-well-prepared
  9. 9. Pre-engineering pathway helps thecurious and the less-well-prepared A broad overview for the curious A gentle introduction for the unprepared A path to the next step: freshman engineering
  10. 10. Pre-engineering pathway helps thecurious and the less-well-prepared Hybrid courses with week night and weekend laboratories to maximize flexibility Active learning: fabricate and test prototypes
  11. 11. Reframing courses to make new paths Technology projects motivate the study of math and science: lead with the fun! ROOC for Oregonians and beyond
  12. 12.

  13. 13. A pathway at the junior year will increaseadmission opportunities to the upper division
  14. 14. A pathway at the junior year will increaseadmission opportunities to the upper division Competency-based assessment for some lower division course work Self-paced study supported by conventional and hybrid lecture format
  15. 15. Freshman and junior level pathways willbroaden access and introduce engineering
  16. 16. Technology: not just for engineers
