The American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE), a peer organization, is surveying engineering educators, professionals, and students about factors supporting their professional success. The survey will only take about 6 to 7 minutes and will be open until May 25. Your responses will only be reported as part of a group and individual responses will remain anonymous. The first 100 respondents to complete the survey by May 25 will be eligible to receive a $10 Amazon Gift Card.
ASEE seeks to understand how the organization can better serve its various constituents– engineering faculty, graduate students, and staff as well as faculty in other disciplines who contribute to the education of future engineers. They also seek to serve employers of engineers and those who seek to otherwise contribute to their attainment of the knowledge skills and abilities required for their optimal professional practice.
ASEE is 129 years old and uniquely spans all engineering disciplines. ASEE is the society for academic engineers and the voice of academic engineering. Though their membership spans pre-college through lifelong learning, their core members are engineering faculty at the college/university level. But their membership is broad and also encompasses all who influence the education of engineers including science, humanities, and liberal arts faculties as well as student affairs professionals, librarians, and academic administrators. In addition to individual members, they have institutional members that include over 80% of the engineering programs in the US as well as a growing number outside the US. Given that breadth, they are concerned with the full spectrum of academic concerns including teaching, engineering education research, engineering technical research, and service.
ASEE’s Vision is “excellent and broadly accessible education empowering students and engineering professionals to create a better world.” That means ASEE exists to help members as engineering educators and stakeholders to cultivate students who have the highest potential, are career-ready, are diverse in identity and outlook, are able to innovate creative solutions to the world’s most challenging problems, are able to anticipate and understand the impact of their solutions on both technical and social systems, and are able to adapt to, and lead within, rapidly evolving technical and social environments.
ASEE’s Mission is “advancing innovation, excellence, and access, at all levels of education for the engineering profession.” They promote excellence – in instruction, in research, in public service and in practice. They exercise global leadership in these areas. They provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and sharing of information, and foster the technological education of society as a whole – critically important in our increasingly technological world. And, they provide high quality programs, products, and services to their members.
