New Book Release for Professor Apelian

Shaping Our World: Engineering Education for the 21st Century, represents our belief that through a holistic education we will ensure the development of the next generation of successful global leaders and engineers.

In the past two decades we’ve seen a plethora of studies, reports, and books that articulate the shortcomings of engineering education and what is lacking in the curriculum. They remind us that it hasn’t changed much in the last few decades, though the world has changed dramatically. Many of these studies focus on identifying the problem and the general needs, rather than outlining specific proposals on how to educate the engineer of the 21st Century.

Grétar Tryggvason, former head of Mechanical Engineering at WPI, and Diran Apelian decided to write a user’s manual that describes how to do it. Its title, Shaping Our World: Engineering Education for the 21st Century, represents our belief that through a holistic education we will ensure the development of the next generation of successful global leaders and engineers. The book is being published by Wiley, and will be released at the MS&T meeting in Columbus, Ohio, October 16–20.
