Professional Formation of Engineers: REvolutionizing engineering and computer science Departments (IUSE/PFE: RED)

Improving Undergraduate STEM Education (IUSE) is NSF’s comprehensive, Foundation-wide framework for an integrated vision of the agency’s investments in undergraduate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education. Professional Formation of Engineers (PFE) and the Pledge of the Computing Professional refer to the formal and informal processes and value systems through which people become engineers and computer scientists respectively. They include the ethical responsibility of practicing engineers and computer scientists to sustain and grow the profession in order to improve quality of life for all people. The goal of REvolutionizing engineering and computer science Departments (RED) is to address cultural challenges and develop well-functioning departments through faculty development, structural change, and cultural change, with a focus on student success in their professional formation attainment. While the RED program has a focus on the middle two years, approaches should consider the curriculum holistically. The Principal Investigator must be a department chair/head (or equivalent).
