... Proctor Reid, director of the NAE Program Office, observed that the NAE is especially well placed to convene a broad range of organizations and individuals with a stake in undergraduate engineering education. The members of the Academy are leaders in industry (40–50 percent have significant industry experience)
From page 3...
... Undergraduate education is not the top priority of most of the societies surveyed but ranks highly across many: 50 percent of the small and mediumsized societies rank undergraduate students as a high-priority audience for their education efforts, as do 65 percent of the large societies and 83 percent of the extra-large societies.2 Most of the societies focus on creating greater awareness of the importance of engineering in general or of a particular engineering discipline. Asked about barriers to change, survey respondents identified communications, resistance to change, and limited time, funding, and other resources.

... , but respondents indicated that they are interested in sharing practices beyond their membership. Finally, societies report a number of gaps in engineering education that educators and engineering organizations could address, including precollege education, faculty preparation for teaching, design education, and two-year preparation programs.

... Chapter 3 summarizes the keynote address on the state of engineering education by Darryll Pines, dean and Nariman Farvardin Professor of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Maryland's Clark School of Engineering. Chapter 4 provides an account of the presentation by Barbara Bogue and Betty Shanahan, principal investigator and co–principal investigator of the Society of Women Engineers' (SWE)
