Abstract: This paper presents a parallel between the ever-present transformation in engineering education and the disruptive technology. The shared characteristics of these two-amongwhich, on how they a?ect changes in its own area-provide an opportunity to draw lessons from the manner disruptive technology transforms businesses and to use them to shape a perspective in designing an engineering education that is relevant to the current era and adaptable to ful?l the current societal and human needs. Furthermore, an analysis into how the current trend of design-based education system has acted like a disruptive technology in engineering education is also presented. © 2012 TEMPUS Publications.
