Education Grants

The SSoE faculty members have been actively involved in securing grants to research and enhance engineering education. Some of the awards are listed in the table below. We have organized the awards into three clusters:

1. Transforming Engineering Research to the Classroom (blue highlight)

2. Supporting Students Education (gray highlight) 

3. Engineering Education Research (yellow highlight)

Some of the publications produced by these studies and other research efforts are listed on the EERC Publications page.
