AbstractThe article reflects on the need for shaping a discipline of engineering education while analyzing the ongoing engineering research practices and the emerging research agendas in the United States. Since engineering is a human activity that involves human values, there is a need for broader conception and understanding. Therefore, the field like engineering design has to be modified with the emerging agendas like socially relevant engineering.
