This project has been prepared for the Engineering College of Copenhagen (IKT). It recommends improvements to educational technology in IKT's Export Engineering Department. Different information technologies were investigated to determine the feasibility and benefit of their integration into an engineering college environment. This research was conducted by a review of written background material followed by student surveys, faculty interviews, and classroom observation at both WPI and IKT. Performing research at WPI and at IKT allowed for comparison between American educational technology and methodology and the corresponding Danish model. After analysis of the research, several innovations were suggested, including Web-based course information distribution, increased use of electronic mail for communication between students and faculty, and increased software instruction.
