Engineering Education

Michigan is committed to bridging the gap between education research and engineering instruction to enhance student learning. Distinct from traditional engineering disciplines and education research, this research lies at the intersection of engineering, education, and the social sciences.

With a deep understanding of engineering, we leverage qualitative and quantitative education research methods to explore innovative means of transforming engineering programs to meet the changing roles of engineers in the global economy.

Biomedical engineering graduate students have the option of pursuing their primary research in engineering education while completing one of the BME graduate concentrations to satisfy the master’s degree requirements and the Rackham Certificate in Engineering Education Research to fulfill their PhD requirements.

  • Engineering entrepreneurship and innovation education
  • Biomedical engineering instructional change
  • Biomedical engineering identity and interdisciplinarity
  • Strategies for front-end design
