This book examines the paradigm of engineering education, the process of accreditation and how accreditation affects graduate global mobility and employability.
The book focuses on two globally recognised accreditation schemes: the International Engineering Alliance (IEA) or so-called Washington Accord and the European Network for Accreditation of Engineering Education (ENAEE). In addition, it emphasises on the emerging process of dual accreditation. Important concepts are demonstrated through case studies. The book also highlights the current global mobility trends of students, graduates, programs/courses; and faculty/academic members. Finally the book examines the importance of using an outcome-based approach to pedagogy and curriculum development to ensure and demonstrate the achievement of the required graduate attributes.
This book will be of immense value to academics/faculty members, professionals and students in the field of engineering education, quality assurance and accreditation organisations (bodies), government policy makers, Engineering Deans, Heads of Departments and Schools, professional engineering and international organisations, and engineering employers/industries.
