Abstract
With the development of engineering and technology, we are living in a high-technology society which is changing our daily life and society as well as related industries. Engineering education is thus moving into a new era of development as a result of major changes occurring in modern society throughout the world. Academic engineering programs have experienced a significant redirection after World WarⅡ to link engineering more closely to its scientific roots. Experiment-oriented engineering education became more analytical and required strong mathematical capabilities for modeling and simulation. Engineers were trained to solve problem analytically and to work independently. Because of modern technological innovations and the complexity of the engineering problems, interdisciplinary education, teamwork and good communication skills are being emphasized nowadays. Understandings for environmental, social and market issues are also being required in designing and manufacturing products. Major end uses in engineering education are industries. They lead the international competitiveness in economics and contribute highly to the development of the country. The roles of engineers are also changing. Once engineers were involved mainly in the design of product and plant and the production of the product.
