National Science Foundation
Engineering faculty possess both deep technical expertise in their engineering discipline and the primary responsibility for educating future engineers. As such, engineering faculty are in a unique position to help address critical challenges in engineering education. The Research Initiation Grants in Engineering Education (RIGEE) program enables engineering faculty who are renowned for teaching, mentoring, or leading educational reform efforts on their campus to initiate collaborations with colleagues in the learning and cognitive sciences to address difficult, boundary-spanning problems in how we educate engineers.
