Series: Education in a Competitive and Globalizing World

This book presents some important issues related to engineering education. Nowadays, the term of engineering education is widely used to address the importance of proper knowledge in the engineering profession. In academia and at the university level, the delivery of engineering topics has become more important than ever before. This book is comprised of five chapters that focus on different topics such as the creation of a bridge between academia and the engineering profession, assessment matters, feedback to learners, e-assessment, and collaborative capstone projects. The importance of e-assessment has become clearer during the pandemic as many academics and professional engineers are engaged in a variety of online assessments either for academic purposes or for industrial matters.
