Special Issue: Bioengineering Education (Part A)
Special Issue of the CBE Journal focusing on the topic of engineering education within our discipline, with a specific focus on the needs of educating engineering students for the sustainable production of food, bioproducts, and bioenergy. Papers are requested that relate to any of the following topics:
- engineering education in bioengineering,
- graduate attribute strengths & challenges in the bioengineering curriculum,
- trends in bioengineering graduate programs,
- lessons learned from past program closures,
- challenges facing bioengineering graduates, and
- emerging opportunities for introducing bioengineering education within Canada’s post-secondary education system.
Within our Canadian universities, the discipline of bioengineering (and its’ predecessor agricultural engineering) has been contracting for the past several decades despite ongoing societal challenges related to the sustainable production of food, bioproducts, and bioenergy. The goal of this Special Issue is to allow us, as a technical society, to focus our attention on the various issues associated with the education of bioengineers in Canada. By sharing ideas we can promote best practice in bioengineering education within our existing programs and possibly even generate ideas to reverse this state of contraction within the Canadian context.
