Abstract

The paradigm shift in engineering education in response to the revolution of the knowledge society has created new challenges for education practitioners. The utilization of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) to facilitate the teaching and learning in engineering has increasingly raised the interest of the education practitioners throughout the world. In this chapter, the authors discuss the trends and paradigm shift in engineering education followed by the importance and current usage of ICT to support the teaching and learning in engineering. Additionally, the new learning approaches and emerging technologies that have great potential to enhance the learning experience in engineering are recommended. Finally, the authors propose a conceptual framework for the creation of a computer-aided learning environment for engineering education, particularly mechanical engineering.
