The purpose of this study is to explore the research base of engineering education in the Journal of Engineering Education (JEE) through an analysis review of articles for a 12-year period, from 2000 to 2012. The research base review focuses on identifying five characteristics of engineering education: (a) temporal distribution, (b) frequently cited authors in JEE articles, (c) research areas involved in each article, (d) types of participant, and (e) methodological design employed. Published journals from web-based sources were selected aligned on the original author’s discussion of engineering education in the articles. The findings summarize the core consistencies of engineering education literature across the globe over the years by identifying the engineering related content professionals addressed in their respective fields.
