The purpose of this study is to investigate the current conditions of the domestic and foreign curricula in the field of chemical engineering
and to draw implications. The results of the study are as follows. Most of the domestic research universities (including non-certified universities)
have curricula organized within the scope of the ABEEK certification, which is the minimum standard guide for chemical engineering
curricula. However, we are concerned that chemical engineering education in some domestic universities may lack in education quality
and program relevance. Graduates from these universities may not have equivalent qualifications as international graduates. It is considered
that most of the 12 domestic universities organize their subjects according to the certificate of accreditation standard and to the traditional
subjects of chemistry in the ‘Department of Chemical Engineering’ or ‘Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering · Chemical
and Biological Engineering’. However, due to the increase in the number of overlapping subjects with other majors because of the movement
towards academic diversity, the integrity of the chemical engineering curricula is at risk. In addition, after surveying the major and research
areas of the department professors, it has been found that there is a shortage of professors who have majored in chemical engineering.
Therefore, there is a concern that students may lack understanding of the core principles of chemical engineering. The results of the analysis
of the curricula of overseas research universities (including non-certified universities) are as follows. Although the chemical engineering
industry in developed countries like the United States and Europe is advancing and changing very quickly, the chemical engineering education
in these countries is highly focused on traditional subjects and other related subjects in order to cultivate traditionally trained chemical
engineers. The Department of Chemical Engineering at overseas universities still maintains the academic integrity of the chemical engineering
field. This is a significant suggestion for our country. On the other hand, domestic universities are changing the name of their chemical
engineering major, or even if the name is maintained, they are fusing their curriculum with other majors such as material engineering.
Therefore, it is very necessary at this point to start a discussion regarding the integrity of the department of chemical engineering in Korea.
We hope that the departments of chemical engineering in domestic universities maintain the integrity of traditional chemical engineering
while operating the curriculum within the scope of the standards of the engineering education certification system.

In general, lecture evaluation has been used in most universities as an important criterion to evaluate quality of education. This study
is exploratory research on the predictors that determine lecture evaluation in college of engineering to give practical implications for
improvement of engineering education. For the exploration of predictors of lecture evaluation, the data of lecture evaluation in A College
of Engineering located in the metropolitan area was used, and Decision Tree Analysis was utilized as an analysis method. As a result,
the characteristics of students turned out to be the most distinct predictor comparing with those of course and instructor at lecture
evaluation in college of engineering. That is, as various elements other than teaching competency influence lecture evaluation in college
of engineering, it is necessary to be more careful in evaluating quality of lecture or teaching competence. Thus, a follow-up study
should be conducted to adjust the influence by the predictors that instructors can hardly control.

Design class through team activities is increasing in engineering education. Team-based education has been known to improve students'
creativity, problem solving ability, cooperative ability, self-directed learning ability, and communication ability. How to organize a team
is an important issue that affects the performance of team activities as well as student satisfaction. However, previous studies have focused
on the causal relationship between team formation and the team's performance. This paper deals with how to organize a balanced team
in a real class. When the basic characteristic values of students are givens, the aim is to make the sum of the characteristic values as
fair as possible for each team. We propose a mathematical team formation model and show how to apply it through case studies.
Keywords: Team formation, Capstone design, Mathematical model

This study introduces an engineering design class which is experimental in a sense that it is planned and implemented with three key
concepts such as learner-centered education, living lab and community based learning. With the class run in being connected with one
regional community in Seoul, it focuses on its educational effects acquired through the living lab-based approach. And this research
investigates the student’s experiences of when, what and how they learn in a learner-centered class. It shows that, rather than taking
professor’s one dimensional lectures in classroom, the students learn actively when they face with the problem in the field. Students
have come to carry out engineering design from the perspective of stakeholders, not from the supplier or producer’s perspective in
the process of meeting with the problem in reality. Team based collaborative activities are crucial in the entire design process. More
importantly, students’ design products have been transformed into more useful and meaningful ones as stakeholders of the local community
have participated into the students' works. However, we need to recognize that there are some important issues that need to be solved
institutionally and systematically in order for such educations to spread. This study suggests several educational arrangements for those

This paper explores the educational method of using films as a means to cultivate critical thinking abilities for engineering students.
It provides a practical educational model that elaborates on how films could be used as case studies to draw relevant questions, and
in the process of answering them, develop students’ ability to think critically. The educational model proposes a learning method of
enhancing critical thinking abilities through debates and essay writing on issues raised in films. Furthermore, the paper entails concrete
learning objectives on critical thinking education, and standards to evaluate levels of enhancement. Through raising the critical thinking
abilities of engineering students, this paper will contribute to the utilization of creative ideas in the process of engineering research.
Furthermore, the concept of utilizing films as a model for education used in this study could be adapted for fields other than that

This study aims to investigate the effect of design thinking-based STEAM program for primary and secondary students. The design
thinking-based STEAM program dealt with advanced scientific technology issues and it consisted of 8 topics. A questionnaire
was developed to explore the change of Science concept awareness, Interest, Self-efficacy, Career consciousness of students
through the program. The questionnaire consisted of following 4 areas, such as ‘Science concept awareness’, ‘Interest’, ‘Career
consciousness’ and ‘Self efficacy’. Pre-post test was conducted to 75 primary and secondary students. As a result of analyzing
post-test compared to pre-test, ‘Science concept awareness’, ‘Career consciousness’ and ‘Self efficacy’ of students were improved.
And the ‘Interest’ wasn't changed significantly. Through this research, it can be suggested that the design thinking-based STEAM
program can be useful at school education to improve the Science concept awareness, Career consciousness and Self-efficacy
of primary and secondary students. It is also proposed that further research of the various areas of interest and other affective
variables will be needed.

With rapid advance of technologies including information and communication technologies, jobs are evolving faster than ever. Architectural
engineering is no exception in this regard, and the green architectural engineering is emerging fast as a promising new field. In this
study, a Delphi study of expert architectural engineers are conducted to find out (1) near future prospects of the field, (2) near future
emerging jobs, (3) competencies needed for these jobs, and (4) educational content necessary to build these competencies with regards
to the green architectural engineering. Initial Delphi survey consisting of open-ended questions in the above four areas were conducted
and came out with 65 items after duplicate removal and semantic refinements. Further refinements via second and third wave of Delphi
results into 40 items that the 13 architectural engineering experts may largely agree upon as future prospects with regards to the green
architectural engineering. Findings indicate that it is expected that the demand for green architectural engineering and needs for automatic
energy control system increase. Also, collaborations with other fields is becoming more and more important in green architectural engineering.
The professional work management skills such as knowledge convergence, problem solving, collaboration skills, and creativity linking
components from various related areas seem to also be on the increasing need. Near future ready critical skills are found to be the
building environment control techniques (thermal, light, sound, and air), the data processing techniques like data mining, energy monitoring,
and the control and utilization of environmental analysis software. Experts also agree on new curriculum for green building architecture
to be developed with more of converging subjects across disciplines for future ready professional skills and experiences. Major topics
to be covered in the near future includes building environment studies, building energy management, energy reduction systems, indoor
air quality, global environment and natural phenomena, and machinery and electrical facility. Architectural engineering community should
be concerned with building up the competencies identified in this Delphi preparing for fast advancing future.
