We were created at the Chicago World’s Fair and Exposition as the Society for the Promotion of Engineering Education.
This report presented engineering education as a compromise between academic and professional study.
is a multi-phase initiative that will identify critical components of engineering curricula, pedagogy, and educational culture necessary to support the education of engineers over the next decades of the 21st century.
Through its Profiles of Engineering and Engineering Technology report and other publications, ASEE continues to establish itself as the home of the most complex trove of information on engineering education.
ASEE has been an important voice for engineering educators for 125 years. From the recommendations in the Wickenden Report in the 1930s urging a major overhaul of engineering education, to managing tens of thousands of engineering-focused fellowships and internships for the federal government, to creating the Journal of Engineering Education, to recent efforts to support diversity, equity, and inclusion, ASEE and its members have led the charge for progress in our field. We are excited to look back on those 125 years – and to look toward ASEE’s future – in this year of celebration.
