Engineering Education and Centers (EEC)

Welcome to EEC

alt

Welcome to the NSF Division of Engineering Education and Centers (EEC) website. We're glad you are here!

EEC is responsible for inspiring, identifying and supporting innovative projects and collaborations in four key areas for the advancement of engineering: center-based transformational research, research and implementation programs to form 21st century engineers, workforce development, and inclusion of underrepresented groups in engineering. 

I cannot think of a single person who does not have at least one of these areas on their radar screen, which makes every engineer a stakeholder in EEC activities!

Please explore our website to learn about the specific programs supporting these four key areas.

Best wishes,
Mario A. Rotea, Division Director, Engineering Education and Centers
