This study explores the effects of an SSI-based program focused on character and values for engineering college students. The participants were fifty-four students enrolled in the program. Data sources include the students’ responses to the Likert-type questionnaire on character and values as well as qualitative data such as classroom dialogues, assignment essays and field notes. The results indicate that the program significantly contributed to the enhancement of the engineering college students’ perception of character and values, especially in the sub-components, sustainable development, perspective-taking, and willingness to act. In addition, the qualitative data reveals the nuances of the students’ responses in the classroom dialogue and essays related to the sub-components. Based on the results, the author compares the participants’ responses to other students in previous research which reported the effects of an SSI-based program on character and values. Compared to the other students, the engineering students in this study cultivated willingness to act through the SSI-based program, without improvement in most of the emotional aspects of character and values.

The purpose of this study is to develop and apply a make-a-thon program based on engineering problem solving for science high school students and to analyze the changes of participating students. Through the consultation of teachers and experts, a team-based and student-driven engineering problem-solving-oriented make-a-thon program was developed. And, the program operated using KAIST's human and material resources for 51 students. Students composed of 12 teams studied 12 topics through an engineering problem-solving process, and the overall program satisfaction was very high, on average 4.62. Through this program, students' creative leader competency have been positively changed, especially in cognitive characteristics (diffusion thinking, problem solving ability) and social characteristics (pursuit of social values). Attitudes toward engineering also changed positively, especially in terms of difficulty of engineering, interest in engineering, gender role in engineering, and engineering and occupational factors. In conclusion, it was confirmed that this program is very effective for science high school students with high demand for engineering education.

The purpose of this study is to suggest a meaningful way of implementing science and engineering integrated lessons in school science settings. To this end, two types of science and engineering integrated lesson units (focusing on the physic concepts of light and wave) were developed based on the core elements of science and engineering integrated lesson; object, context, engineering design, and connection with science. These two units were implemented in free semester program in a middle school in a metropolitan city. Throughout the process of program implementation, instructor’s reflection and focus group interview with participant students were collected to reveal problems arising from the field implementation. In addition, engineering education experts were interviewed to discuss the potential problems and possible solutions for the problems. As results of the study, five main problems of implementing escience and engineering integrated lessons in a school science setting were revealed and practical solutions for the problems were suggested by the experts.

A new moment of inertia experiment apparatus different from the existing one has been developed, which does not require deformation of a sample in order to fix it to the apparatus. This new experiment apparatus was able to experiment with constant-shaped objects that did not deform the samples, so that it enabled them for conducting an experiment which is close to an ideal rigid model dealt in the general physics course. The new experimental apparatus was easy and accurate in measuring the physical quantity by using the experimental principle of physical pendulum. In the results of the measurement of the moments of inertia of the six samples, all measurements were made to be accurate enough to measure with very small errors within 1%. In addition, it has been found to be useful as an experiment apparatus to understand the concept of the moment of inertia and to prove the formula for moment of inertia. Therefore, if the new moment of inertia experiment apparatus developed in this study is used in students' experiments, it is expected that students will be able to greatly increase their understanding of the concept of moment of inertia.

In light of the 4th industrial revolution, this research identifies critical thinking education as the key component of cultivating a new pool of integrative talents. It seeks to find ways to incorporate artificial intelligence, one of the biggest upcoming innovations, into critical thinking education. This paper aims to propose an education model that raises awareness on related issues of AI and set a healthy direction for its development through debates on topics raised by the film, Ex Machina, which depicts the dangerous implications of AI technology.

This paper introduces the association method for the program outcomes of engineering education accreditation and the competency units of National Competency Standards(NCS). This association method can be used to efficiently develop an engineering curriculum that is based on both of the NCS and the engineering education accreditation. The association method consists of an analysis phase, an association phase and a checking phase. We also deals with the curriculum development procedure that uses the proposed association of program outcomes and competency units. Also, we provide the application of this method to the computer engineering program for NCS-based engineering education accreditation. Thus we can systematically and efficiently develop curriculums for the NCS-based engineering education accreditation by using the proposed method.

The purpose of this study is to norm the engineering design competency test. To achieve the purpose of the study, a survey was conducted on engineering college students nationwide using engineering design competency test developed in the precedent study, and a total of 2,859 questionnaires were analyzed. The main results are as follows. First, the national average of engineering design competency scores was 158 out of 240 points. Second, there was no significant difference between genders in engineering design competency by background variables. On the other hand, there was a significant difference by major. It was found that mechanical and construction majors have higher engineering design competency than IT and chemical/material engineering majors. Also, the scores of engineering design competency increased as the grade went up. Third, the number of courses related to engineering design did not affect by engineering design competency, but the actual number of times of experience in engineering design was affected by engineering design competency.
