This book examines the paradigm of engineering education, the process of accreditation and how accreditation affects graduate global mobility and employability. The book focuses on different accreditation schemes including the Washington Accord and the European Network for Accreditation of Engineering Education and the emerging process of dual accreditation. Important concepts are demonstrated through case studies. Finally the book examines the importance of using an outcome-based approach to pedagogy and curriculum development to ensure and demonstrate the achievement of the required graduate attributes.
This work will be of value to professionals and students in the field of engineering education, accreditation bodies, government policy makers, engineering Deans, Heads of School and professional engineering organizations.
