With support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) has launched a multi-phase, multi-year sequence of meetings with different stakeholders to transform the undergraduate engineering experience. Transforming Undergraduate Education in Engineering (TUEE) is designed to develop a clear understanding of the knowledge, skills, and abilities next generation engineering graduates should possess and the changes in curricula, pedagogy, and academic culture that will be needed to instill those qualities.

For the Erik Jonsson School Of Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Texas at Dallas, close collaboration with industry has been in place from its very start in 1986 and now includes one of the largest internship programs in the country as well as industry sponsored senior-design projects for over a decade. We have also worked to create pathways for transfer students from our community college partners through strong articulation agreements and back-transfer programs.

The Dallas Area TUEE Alliance is a group of academic institutions and industrial partners that have been working through the past year to consider, evaluate and realize the findings of the ASEE TUEE initiative and share our experience with all those interested in engineering education.

Our group includes:

Academic members

  • Collin College
  • Eastfield College
  • Richland College
  • The University of Texas at Dallas

Industrial Members

  • AT&T Foundry
  • Ericsson
  • Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services
