ASEE Annual Conference Proceedings
The features and progress of Picker Engineering Program at Smith College are discussed. This program is the first undergraduate program leading to a degree in engineering at a women's liberal arts college. The program's goal is to educate engineers who are adaptable to the rapidly changing demands of society. The strategies which focus on productive ways of processing information, ways that involve the sort of intentions and conciousness necessary for meaningful learning are also discussed.
