Abstract

The present study intends to propose an interdisciplinary program that is based on integrative STEM approach and further to explore the development of engineering design in the program. The participants are 29 graduate and university students who take an optional course ‘Robotics’ in an university in Taiwan. Data collections include the groups’ research notes and interviews from selected groups. The result reveals that the participants could perform most of the engineering design practices, however, they have insufficient practices on the meta-cognitive dimensions. In addition, the factors that affect the participants’ engineering design are also revealed. Some suggestions that are beneficial in developing the engineering design are proposed in this study.
