The purpose of the study was to develop the Arduino based STEAM instruction materials for creative engineering design class. PDIE
model was used in this study. We developed a STEAM lesson plan and a STEAM lesson worksheet for a total of six sessions through
the steps of preparation, development, implementation and evaluation. The validity of the instruction materials was evaluated by the
10 experts using a survey. The instruction materials were applied to the class (52 students attended) of the creative engineering designs
unit in technology and home economics subject. The class satisfaction and the creative solving-problem ability were examined after
the calss. The class satafacition was high as the average of 10 item was 4.57 (out of 5). The paired t-test was conducted to compare
the means of the creative solving-problem ability. It was observed that ‘understanding and mastery of knowledge, thought, function
and skills in a specific domain', ‘divergent thinking', ‘critical and logical thinking' and ' motivational factors' were significantly increased
after the class. The instruction materials develped in this study were successfully designed to enhance the creative solving-problem
ability by designing creative tasks and to intrique the interest by adding visual and auditory stimuli with the Arduino.

This study was conducted to identify the causes of academic weakness and to find the ways to cope with it for the students majoring
in science and engineering at the top university in Korea. For this purpose, a questionnaire was conducted for students who experienced
academic warning and poor academic performance at A university, and a total of 207 students responded. The results were divided
into two groups majoring in science and engineering or not and the characteristics and differences of each group were analyzed. In
addition, in-depth interviews were conducted with five students who had experienced academic warning and poor academic performance.
As a result, the group majoring in science and engineering had a relatively low level of difficulty in forming interpersonal relationships
and relatively high degree of participation of activities in their departments. The group majoring in science and engineering have a
tendency to choose careers that are connected with their majors, and therefore, their response was relatively low due to lack of career
goals. However, the group majoring in science and engineering had difficulty in academic performance due to the difference in basic
courses and the level of recognition about self-learning strategy needed for university study was relatively low compared with the group
majoring in non-science and engineering. When they experienced academic problems, they said that their interest, support, and positive
feedback from professors helped them recover their motivation and continue their studies. Through these results, it was confirmed that
intervention and support are needed considering the academic situation and characteristics of the students majoring in science and engineering.

This study aims to investigate the effect of college choice factors on withdrawal intention of first-year undergraduates in STEM majors.
The data for this study were collected from a national sample of 4-year institutions that participated in Collegiate Longitudinal Study
funded by the National Research Foundation of Korea during 2013-2014. The data included 1,484 students in STEM majors from 30
institutions, and this study used bivariate and multivariate analytic methods to answer the research questions. This study found that
while the internal dimensions of college choice showed a negative effect on the intention to dropout, external dimensions of college
choice such as college environment, financial accessibility, admission possibility had a positive effect on the intention. The findings
indicate that it is necessary to pay attention to college choice for enrollment management to prevent first-year undergraduates in STEM
majors from dropping out.

The purpose of this study is to develop the self-reported measurement for engineering design competency. In this study, engineering
design competency is defined as the overall individual ability that is necessary for an engineer for his/her successful accomplishment
of engineering design. This measurement was developed through reviewing documents, defining factor and sub-factor, making an item
and constructing validity verification. The self-reported measurement for engineering design competency consists of 6 factors and 40
items. 6 factors cover competency of design performance, competency of considering economic and social influence, competency of
utilizing mathematical and scientific knowledge, competency of teamwork, competency of design-centered thinking and competency of
collecting and using data. A 6-points Likert scale was used for each item.

Kunsan National University obtained accreditation for its Architecture & Building Engineering Program from the Accreditation Board
for Engineering Education in Korea (ABEEK) in 2004 and has offered an ABEEK-accredited degree pathway ever since. Then, in
2018, the university introduced the course-embedded outcomes assessment system as per ABEEK’s KEC2015 accreditation criteria. One
year into its implementation, the new system allows the measurement and assessment of 10 program outcomes covering 19 curricular
modules and 1 non-curricular licensing examination. The system incorporates the four areas of specialization within architectural engineering
as well as the three course categories of the math, science, and computer; liberal arts; and engineering core modules under the accreditation
scheme. It also takes the students’ academic years into account, especially for the mandatory modules offered to all students. Its rubric
clarifies the performance criteria, performance level, assessment tools, objectives, and modules. The 2018 course-embedded outcomes
assessment system is an ever-evolving structure with regular CQI: Continuous Quality Improvements along the circular process of system
establishment → implementation → evaluation as per the virtuous cycle model required for an accredited engineering program.

The purpose of this study is to develop capstone design model of gender analysis methods suitable for engineering education field
and examine improvements and effects by applying it to actual lessons for biomedical engineering students. Case study was performed
to achieve the purpose of the study. Twelve gender analysis methods were applied to ’biomedical engineering capstone design’
which was major course offered by department of biomedical engineering at J university. After the students understood how to
analyze gender analysis methods and cases, they decided project topics and presented what gender analysis methods were applied
for each project. Additionally, the results of analysis showed that the students were more able to understand the differences between
men and women of all ages and try to narrow down the differences. They also found that they could contribute to development
of new added value of knowledge and technology that reflected the needs of both men and women by applying gender analysis
methods in system development.
