Some insights on social inclusion in engineering education

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


A revolutionary transformation in engineering education is well known since past some years. The fourth industrial revolution is mainly responsible for that. But somewhere it is also important to keep some fundamental aspects such as social inclusion and knowledge decolonisation etc. in practice. These are basic building blocks that strengthen the foundation of university education. More importantly, they prompt a better work culture; students engagement, participation, and involvement; and social security as well. This paper provides some insights on social inclusion practices with an aim to facilitate Professors of engineering education and prompt further dialogue and work to create a better work culture in universities for engineering education. It is worth mentioning that dialogues, trainings, facilitation methods, and policies play a major role as far as enabling social inclusion in engineering education is concerned. The paper hopes to encourage the Professors of engineering education institutes or universities in order to bridge the gap between diversity and inclusion and for maintaining a better relationship between them and students.
