'Technical Knowledge or Professional Skills: What should we teach our engineers?
Engineering education has an academic side that favours theoretical knowledge in engineering sciences, and a professional side that emphasizes skills for engineering practice. In this 4TU.CEE inspiration session Kristina Edström explores some associated tensions, by highlighting debates in the past and present, strategies for integrating both sides in the curriculum, and the resulting demands on faculty.
Kristina is Associate Professor Engineering Education Development at KTH Stockholm & Chief-Editor of the European Journal of Engineering Education.
