The Designing Education Lab (DEL), led by Dr. Sheri Sheppard, investigates a broad range of engineering education topics, from the persistence of students and alumni in engineering fields to the impact of exposure to entrepreneurship on engineering students' career interests. DEL researchers are engaged in national and international collaborations with colleagues within and outside of engineering.

Their activities and projects emphasize the relationship of research TO academic and professional practice by informing the redesign of engineering course pedagogy and curriculum and dissemination of findings in conference presentations, workshops, webinars, online resources, and publications.
