Abstract

Engineers with their creative, researcher and knowledgeable identities play an important role for the quality of life and welfare of the society. However the skills listed above are highly correlated with the quality level of engineering education given. Country specific educational habits and opportunities affect the learning pattern of individuals enrolled in engineering programs and therefore have impact on the career and future. In this study, possible improvement suggestions for the engineering education in Turkey will be given while comparing the teaching methods and conditions of two Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) accredited surveying engineering education programs in Turkey and USA.
