Global Learning The role of the Engineering Education Center (EEC) in St. Louis is changing from providing face-to-face instruction for students in the St. Louis metro area to that of providing online instruction serving students throughout the U.S. and various international locations. The following charts clearly demonstrate the ability of departments to supplement their instructional capability by using highly qualified adjuncts from the St. Louis area. Over 20 courses have been delivered in recent semesters. The background of the adjunct faculty ranges from Technical Fellows at Boeing to retired faculty from various institutions, and all have been approved by the departments using their services.
