SA+AH MA in art education student Kate Lallement presented at the American Society of Engineering Education conference research from her Capstone course about the parallels and benefits of art and art education in engineering.
Lallement presented her research with her father, Dr. Dennis Fallon, a professor and founding dean of engineering at the Citadel, who sparked her interest in the benefits of art education in engineering. After he expressed a real need in engineering for more creative and innovative students, the two began their research together. This research examines the ways that art-related skills and techniques are relevant in engineering undergraduate programs of study.
