–Andreas Cangellaris, Dean, College of Engineering

Celebrating 20 years of fostering excellence in teaching and learning in the College of Engineering, AE3 is the place for faculty and instructors to get and stay connected to a community of support. 

We offer a variety of resources for engineering faculty and instructors, funding opportunities for those interested in teaching innovation, and one-to-one consultations for individualized support.  Our goal is to help you become reflective practitioners of teaching, and to encourage efficiency and success in all aspects of your profession.
