Abstract

In the era of fast technological development in all engineering disciplines, how to improve the employability of engineering graduates imposes an even greater challenge than ever before to the educators in higher education. What constitutes key knowledge and skills for future professional engineers and how they can be developed in the graduates through our engineering courses are important questions whose answers can have a profound impact on the success of the engineering education. In this paper, the strategy of using verification & validation (V&V) as a key driver for quality learning in engineering education is proposed. The rationale of the proposed strategy and the requirements for its success are explained. An example of implementing this strategy is illustrated. In the conclusion section, a current and common issue is raised.
