Division of Engineering Education and Centers (EEC) of the
Directorate for Engineering encourages the integration of
engineering research and education to accelerate technological
and educational innovation and improve the quality and diversity
of engineering graduates entering the technical workforce.
EEC encourages partnerships that infuse both research and
education with new knowledge from multiple disciplines, take
advantage of new understanding of how students learn, and
focus on engineered systems. The objective is to graduate
engineering leaders with a global outlook and the ability
to adapt to the rapidly evolving technical environment in
industry, academe, and society.
