This descriptive study investigates the perception of engineering students and faculty regarding teaching methods and faculty involvement to create a picture of what is occurring in engineering education. The population was the engineering students and faculty of Colorado State University's College of Engineering. Data from this research suggests that engaging teaching methods are not being used as often as research indicates they should and that there is a lack of student-faculty interaction outside of the classroom. This research adds to the breadth of knowledge and understanding of the current environment of engineering education. Furthermore, the data allows engineering educators and other higher education professionals to gain insight into the teaching methods currently being utilized in engineering and reinforces the importance of student-faculty interaction and thus facilitating the creation of programs or initiatives to improve student academic success.With the clustered courses the college adds a seminar that is able to create curriculum links to all the courses. The role of the faculty in the paired or clustered course model depends on the amount of time the faculty are able to invest and theiranbsp;...
