Abstract

The Centre for Engineering Education in Universiti Teknologi Malaysia was established to expand engineering education research and promote research-based teaching and learning of engineering. Initially, it has the mission to equip Malaysia with the much needed technical and engineering manpower for a developing country. Through its focus on scholarly research and the culture of innovation the center is now providing the support towards fulfilling the great need for human capital among nations in the Asia region. This paper discuss the foundation for the formation of the CEE based on a R&D organizational framework and set out a range of evidence of the center's innovation performance and achievements since its establishment. The variety of services and supports offered by the center gave indication of its impact on the growth and accomplishment in the field of engineering education, both locally and internationally.
