Presentation Title Addressing the Updated Engineering Design Definition in MSE Programs

Abstract Scope Design lies at the core of engineering as a discipline and is a critical component in engineering education. It is often implemented in curricula through various design projects (e.g. freshman experiences and capstone projects). Materials science and engineering (MSE) programs, however, are often more science-focused in nature, making it difficult to address engineering design. Starting this academic year, ABET has implemented a new definition of engineering design which gives details of critical aspects for design projects. But how can this change be addressed in MSE programs? CES EduPack, a materials education software developed by ANSYS Granta, is working to support materials educators in the integration of this new definition within their courses. This talk will be focused on breaking down the ABET definition in a systematic way and connecting it to the role materials play in engineering design through CES EduPack.
