This study investigated student engagement of STEM-specialized higher education institutions in comparison with students from humanities
& social science and STEM majors, respectively. By doing so, the study aimed to find the effects of the characteristics of STEM
disciplines and organizational culture of STEM-specialized small-sized institutions on student engagement. The students majoring STEM
disciplines, regardless of the organizational types, showed lower reflective-integrative learning experiences compared to students on
humanities & social science disciplines. In contrast, students of STEM-specialized institutions reported significantly higher levels of
peer relationship and student-faculty interaction in comparison with humanities & social science students and STEM students of general
higher education institutions. Finally, the study suggests policy implications for STEM education.

This research points out the necessity of customized communication education for engineering students in the era of the Fourth Industrial
Revolution. This paper also points out such problems of current communication education as presentation and discussion-focused 'Public
Speech' exercises, absence of interests about social issues, and lack of interactive communication learning. In general, as the characteristics
of their major education, engineering students are not aggressive in self-questioning and active communication rather than their sensitive
reaction to the changes of the new era. Considering these characteristics of engineering students, this research emphasizes that future
communication education should be deployed from the major-focused thinking to the development of convergent thinking, from the
problem-solving to the problem-finding, and from the contentious thinking to the cooperative thinking. In addition, as a class design
reflecting future trends, this research emphasizes, firstly the development of cooperative communication education model, secondly
active utilization of SMART technology, and lastly the importance of customized-coaching for each student considering their own
characteristics and requirements.

The purpose of this study is to develop an educational model based on the capacity analysis of college students. In order to measure the
learning ability of female science and engineering students, we used various tools to derive core competencies. The competency element
of human resources implementation, the element of learning achievement area in the undergraduate education actual condition survey, and
the analysis of the learning achievement elements of the engineering certification program were analyzed and the development of teaching
method was searched to find ways to increase the competence of female students. In addition, we developed a model that can apply the
development of pedagogy in the curriculum to the liberal arts, majors, and comparative courses, and presented the internship in field experience
area, the improvement of on the spot learning, and teaching method and guidance to enhance the female students' competence. Also, as
a case study of the proposed teaching method, new curriculum of 'Understanding of Big Data' which is the basis of the fourth industrial
revolution technology in the second semester of 2016 was developed and applied to the education model. The results of this study are very
positive, and we can expect the effectiveness of the new education model to enhance the learning ability and capacity of female students.

Because all areas of mechanical engineering involves the use of mathematics, mechanical engineers need mathematical understanding
and skill enhancement. To achieve the effective mathematics education for mechanical undergraduate students, it should reorganize the
important subtopics of mathematics. In this paper, we explore the direction of the development of mathematics education for mechanical
engineers by analyzing the teaching hours of each topics in the mathematics and by comparing the results with significance analysis
of expert survey. To do so, syllabuses of mathematics courses of the selected mechanical engineering departments were analyzed and
the survey responses of professionals in the Korean Society of Mechanical Engineers were also investigated. Finally, the revision of
mathematics curriculum in the mechanical engineering was proposed.

This research aims to explore the relationships between ‘teamwork skills’ (often called team activity competence) and ‘thinking styles’
of engineering students in Korea, and to provide an explanation for the application of team-based environment as well as for the increase
of teamwork skills. Teams and team activity are pervasive in today’s organization and there has been relatively much research on teamwork
skills and its related factors. However, to date, little attention has been paid to the teamwork skills, essential factor in team-based environment
and its relationships with thinking styles. This study was conducted with 383 engineering students at P University, and students’ teamwork
skills as well as thinking styles have been measured before and after team-based learning class (hereafter TBL). Our findings show
that firstly, there was a significant increase of teamwork skills between before and after TBL class. Second, team activity competence
was found to have a higher correlation with most of creativity generating styles (i.e. legislative, judicial, hierarchical and global styles).
Third, hierarchical style was found to influence team activity more than other components, and also legislative, external, global and
judicial styles contributed to team-based activity. These findings are expected to provide an explanation for the application of thinking
styles in team-based environment and will be useful for the improvement of related courses in engineering school.

In this study, specific teaching methods of lecturing and improved discussion methods (combining discussion and problem-based learning)
were selected and applied for each major subject and learning content area in the fields of engineering, language, and social sciences.
Then, the selected teaching methods were examined to determine the most effective learning contents. Finally, in order to determine
the most effective teaching methods, a survey on student satisfaction was analyzed statistically. The results showed that students preferred
teaching methods that combine lectures and improved discussion methods to the traditional method of only lectures. Therefore, this
research proposes the combined teaching method for each major subject and learning content area.

This study examined a difference in a change of understanding and recognition on STEAM Education before and after participating
in STEAM Education of university students majoring in teaching profession of engineering system who took part in ‘STEAM Education
of being made together with undergraduates for 2016' as part of the project for a center of supporting STEAM pre-service teachers.
As a result, the pre-service teachers majoring in teaching profession of engineering system could be confirmed to have been improved
the understanding and sympathy level with STEAM education as a whole following the execution of the program. Comparing it with
other majoring system, the pre-service teachers majoring in teaching profession of engineering system were shown to be a little low
in pre-perception or satisfaction, but were indicated later to have high intention of participation in STEAM education. This suggests
that the pre-service teachers majoring in teaching profession of engineering system recognize the importance of STEAM education
in the engineering education, but are feeling pressure about interpersonal communication. Accordingly, it is time that there is a need
to have a system of officially providing the implementation of STEAM education and an opportunity of experience in the education
for pre-service teachers aiming at the engineering education for future generation.

This research is as a case study of innovative engineering education system through idea factory of korea maritime and ocean university
and deals with development of temperature-humidity control device (THCD) for fiber storage on composites in viewpoint of problem
solving method. Fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) includes many variables on the composite manufacturing process. Above all, the interfacial
adhesion between the fiber and the matrix acts as an important thing that decided mechanical property of the FRP, and also it is profoundly
linked to external temperature and relative humidity. High void fraction leads to a result in interlaminar fracture. Therefore, in this
research, to establish correlation between fiber reinforcement and fiber storage conditions of temperature and relative humidity we developed
a THCD for fiber reinforcement. To evaluate performance of the THCD, glass fiber reinforced plastic (GFRP) is made under the extreme
conditions each temperature 34 °C, relative humidity 98 % and it can be said that there are the change of mechanical properties according to
fiber storage conditions. As a result, the THCD showed sufficient possible application for understanding and applied research of composites
field in material engineering. Also, we could check that the necessity of introduction of innovative system such as idea factory existed.
