Editor, AEE
Senior Associate Dean

We are delighted to publish our eleventh issue, and, coincidentally, with its eleven papers. The topics cover the wide spectrum of engineering education, from freshmen through graduate students, with an increasing number of papers that focus on the use of technology to improve learning. The authors also represent a wide range of institutions from across the U.S. and internationally, demonstrating that AEE is becoming more widely known and, hopefully, more widely read.
