It is a tremendous honor for me to be selected as the next Editor-in-Chief (EIC) of such a prestigious journal as the IEEE Transactions on Education. I am most grateful to the journal's Steering Committee for having faith in me and giving me this opportunity to shape the continued success of this premiere publication. The opportunity to lead such a respected journal is a huge privilege but also a significant responsibility. Engineering education is reaching a turning point. The rapid cycle of change in the industries our students enter has increased calls from those industry partners for a different type of graduate. This call is being heard by the engineering education community, but progress is slow; support is growing, but both faculty and senior management alike are looking to make evidence-based decisions on what changes work. This landscape presents an unparalleled opportunity for a publication like the IEEE Transactions on Education—a respected publication from an internationally-recognized body, whose focus is on the scholarship of application, discovery and of integration. As more and more engineering educators take on the challenge of designing their curriculum for the engineers needed in the latter half of the 21st century, they need to find a home where they are supported to produce high-quality papers. These papers should not only present evidence-based educational practice, but also provide inspiration for other researchers to implement their ideas and join the education research community.
