How does technical education fit into today's society? What is the implication of the United Nations Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (2005-2014) for technical education? This book examines these questions. The author analyses the corresponding needs within technical education from various perspectives. She has identified different domains within the world of engineering including the domain of engineering profession and practice for manufacturing, design and development of technical solutions to fulfil the consumers' needs, the domain of technology assessment which considers potential impacts of technical solutions on human beings, and the domain of technical education as the foundation for engineering knowledge and skills. This book will be helpful to both researchers and practitioners in shaping the future of technical education.
