Call for Papers [Special Topic]

The Role of Technical Standards in the Curriculum of Academic Programs in Engineering, Technology and Computing
The special topic calls for papers on the Role of Technical Standards in the Curriculum of Academic Programs in Engineering, Technology and Computing and such papers will appear in Higher Education of Social Science as a special column.
Affiliated research area: Curriculum Setting, Standards of Teaching, Application of Technical Standards

Description
Technical standards are established norms or requirements. They are usually available as formal documents that determine uniform engineering, technical, performance and interoperability criteria, methods, processes and practices. Among their uses are the setting of specifications at the onset of a design, defining constraints during the detailed design process, and serving as benchmarks during testing. Introducing standards in the classroom will augment the learning experience by pointing students to available design tools, and to best industry practices. Student knowledge of standards would facilitate the transition from classroom to workplace by aligning educational concepts with real-world applications and market constraints.

Requirements
In addition to the Review and Original Articles by invited speakers, we are inviting you to submit a relevant research paper on The Role of Technical Standards in the Curriculum of Academic Programs in Engineering, Technology and Computing for consideration. Papers will be subject to normal peer review and must comply with the Guide for Authors.
