    With the growing environment and consciousness of "outcome-based education," the importance of this subject has increased manyfold. Unfortunately, there is little information on engineering pedagogy available outside of scattered journal articles, conference and symposium proceedings, workshop notes, and government and company reports. This book overcomes these difficulties by presenting, in a single volume, many of the recent advances in the field of engineering pedagogy and its recent developments.

    Engineering Pedagogy Towards Outcome-Based Education provides a systematic approach to explicit fundamentals as well as recent advances in the area. It incorporates various case studies for major topics as well as numerous academic examples. Each chapter contains many state-of-the-art techniques required for practical engineering applications.

    This book serves as a useful source of information for practicing academicians and specialists as well as academic institutions working on the subject.
