A knowledge-information-data concept model for engineering education

Brodie, Ian and Brodie, Lyn (2009) A knowledge-information-data concept model for engineering education. Australasian Journal of Engineering Education, 15 (3). pp. 137-144. ISSN 1324-5821


Engineering is a knowledge-based industry. In order to produce job-ready engineering graduates, educators need to fully understand and differentiate fundamental terms of the information age such as data,information and knowledge. These are all familiar terms, but may have different meanings to different people. A simple model is provided in this paper as a common starting point to conceptualise, discuss and ultimately enhance the incorporation of knowledge-information-data (KID) within the engineering curricula. The application of the KID model in translating student feedback and to illustrate course content deficiencies is also described
