The most important part of the Designing Education Lab’s mission, is to do accurate and meaningful research to better understand the various aspects of engineering and education that we are interested in. Our research projects can be divided into three main categories: work with the [[Academic Pathways Study]] (APS), work with the [[Engineering Pathways Study]]&nbsp;(EPS) and our work as part of the Epicenter team. The Academic Pathways Study investigated why students choose to stay in or leave engineering programs. EPS investigated the career paths of recent engineering graduates. And finally, our work with [[Epicenter]] investigates what role entrepreneurship can play in engineering education.<br>

The Designing Education Lab has worked on four main projects. They are: the Carnegie Preparation for the Professions Project (PPP), the Academic Pathways Study (APS), the Engineering Pathways Study (EPS), and research within the National Center for Engineering Pathways to Innovation (Epicenter). The Carnegie PPP studied models of undergraduate engineering education across the U.S. The Academic Pathways Study (2003-2010) investigated why students choose to stay in or leave engineering programs. EPS (2010-present) investigates the career paths of recent engineering graduates. And finally, our work with Epicenter (2011-present) investigates what role entrepreneurship can play in engineering education.<br>

Major Research Projects:

The Designing Education Lab has worked on four main projects. They are: the Carnegie Preparation for the Professions Project (PPP), the Academic Pathways Study (APS), the Engineering Pathways Study (EPS), and research within the National Center for Engineering Pathways to Innovation (Epicenter). The Carnegie PPP studied models of undergraduate engineering education across the U.S. The Academic Pathways Study (2003-2010) investigated why students choose to stay in or leave engineering programs. EPS (2010-present) investigates the career paths of recent engineering graduates. And finally, our work with Epicenter (2011-present) investigates what role entrepreneurship can play in engineering education.
