Engineering Education encourages the integration of engineering research and education to accelerate technological and educational innovation and improve the quality and diversity of engineering graduates entering the technical workforce. EEC encourages partnerships that infuse both research and education with new knowledge from multiple disciplines, take advantage of new understanding of how students learn, and focus on engineered systems. The objective is to graduate engineering leaders with a global outlook and the ability to adapt to the rapidly evolving technical environment in industry, academe, and society.
The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program is a Foundation-wide activity that offers the National Science Foundation's most prestigious awards in support of junior faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholars through outstanding research, excellent education and the integration of education and research within the context of the mission of their organizations. Such activities should build a firm foundation for a lifetime of leadership in integrating education and research. NSF encourages submission of CAREER proposals from junior faculty members at all CAREER-eligible organizations and especially encourages women, members of underrepresented minority groups, and persons with disabilities to apply.
