Engineering and Science Education
Within the Department of Engineering and Science Education, our research group focuses on overall faculty and graduate student success. We are working on a wide variety of research projects that aim to improve the surrounding community via student and faculty development. Specifically, our graduate student researchers have projects surrounding success in areas from math and engineering all the way to space operations education. Each research project approaches education in a different way. This may be done by targeting the course curriculum, faculty teaching methods, or the ways that students process the information being taught to them. Further, we are exploring the impact of COVID-19 and online instruction on faculty and student motivation. Thus, overall contributing to the community through the avenue of the education research.
