Long-term and sustainable engineering education reform requires a pipeline for educating future engineering faculty and professionals interested in pursuing careers in K-12 teaching and administration. Purdue University is evaluating the development of new M.S. and Ph.D. degree programs in engineering education to meet these very needs. It is envisioned that students with Bachelor of Science degrees in engineering and other technical fields will be eligible to participate in the M.S. and Ph.D. programs. These programs will combine advanced courses in engineering and education with research in engineering education. Graduates of such programs will be well-positioned for faculty careers at the K-12, community college, or university level as well as a variety of other careers. Proposed criteria for admission into the M.S. and Ph.D. engineering education programs, descriptions of the programs and program coursework, and anticipated job opportunities for graduates of such programs are discussed.
