Series: Service Learning in the Disciplines Series
This book represents the 14th in the Service-Learning in the Disciplines Series and concentrates on how service-learning can be successfully incorporated in engineering programs, a discipline to which is it relatively new. Contributors to the volume are experienced in using service-learning and address issues of concern to engineering educators. As one peer reviewer commented, "The audience for this [book] is the engineering education community--that community will expect practical applications of the theory that will lead to improved engineering education."
