In March 2015, AE3 co-sponsored a MillerComm Lecture by Carl Wieman, winner of the 2001 Nobel Prize in Physics. His talk made the case for a scholarly approach to teaching, guided by research and information technology. His slides are available here.
|Engineering Education at Illinois: Past, Present, and Future
In October 2014, AE3 celebrated two important events: its 20th anniversary and the 50th anniversary of a visionary essay by Dean William Everitt predicting the future of engineering education.
Over 100 people came to hear Don Bitzer, professor of ECE and co-inventor of PLATO (the past); Rohit Bhargava, professor of bioengineering (the present), and Dean Andreas Cangellaris (the future).
