Abstract

Engineering students are increasingly expected to work in teams and participate in projects. These expectations are motivated by employer expectations, ABET EC2000 criteria, and research on the importance of active and cooperative learning. Seldom is there explicit attention paid to helping students develop teamwork and project management skills. This paper outlines essential teamwork and project management skills and provides materials and suggestions for helping students develop these skills.
