About the Department
The EED advances the engineering profession and enables student success by developing and delivering state-of-the-art, innovative, multidisciplinary engineering courses and programs; by modeling and advocating scholarly, evidence-based teaching within the College of Engineering; and by integrating pedagogical discovery, practice, and dissemination through world-class engineering education research.
The Ohio State University College of Engineering is nationally recognized for its commitment to undergraduate education. Our teaching methods—including practical, hands-on experience through project-based design courses; a focus on providing opportunities for undergraduate research experiences; and individualized attention to students—have proven to effectively facilitate students' academic and, ultimately, career success.
Serving as the focal point for the College of Engineering’s innovative instructional programs, the Engineering Education Innovation Center (EEIC) was established in May 2007 with a mission to enrich the student experience, strengthen the academic credentials of our undergraduates, and foster leadership through the Honda Professorship in Engineering Education. In November 2015, the EEIC was transitioned into the present Department of Engineering Education.
The EED provides academic, personal, and professional activities that are designed to supplement the undergraduate experience both inside and outside the classroom. In addition, the EED creates new courses and strengthens existing ones to ensure that students are well prepared for the ever-changing global employment environment.
