Workshop specific information (grades)
Engineering Education The Engineer of 2020 Vision of the 2020 Committee Engineering Education
Educators and engineers take a proactive effort to address technology and societal changes New strategic planning tools to reconstitute curricula Prepare students for careers in a world of rapid change and low predictability Be responsive to disparate learning styles and career interests
Engineering Education A Modular Approach to the course
Graphics Communication Hand Sketching Computer Aided Design Design/Drafting Teamwork (INVENTOR) Project Management Design Process Algorithm Development Flowcharting Programming in MATLAB
Engineering Education 2 Just Do It!
On a sheet of paper
Print your name Select an object you can see in this room and describe its appearance in words. Do NOT identify the object by name Do NOT describe what it does Introduce yourself to neighbor and exchange papers
Print your name Sketch the object described. HOW DID YOU DO? Could you figure out what the object is? How closely does your sketch match the actual object?
Engineering Education Rationale for Learning Graphics Communication 92% of the design process is graphically based
To help visualize concepts and ideas To communicate concepts To document a solution Standards and Conventions
Create a common language Facilitate communication
A Total View of Engineering Divided into Its Major Activities (Bertoline , 2006) Engineering Education Learning Objectives
Produce and interpret drawings appropriate to various engineering disciplines Analyze and create 2D and 3D sketches to communicate graphically Demonstrate facility with 2D and 3D computer aided engineering software Figures from Bertoline, Fundamentals of Graphics Communication, 2004 Engineering Education 3 What is Design? Definition of Design "Engineering design is the process of devising a system, component, or process to meet desired decisionneeds. It is a decision-making process (often iterative), in which the basic science and mathematics and engineering sciences are applied to convert resources optimally to meet a stated objective." (ABET)
Engineering Education What is Design? Design Problem Characteristics
OpenOpen-ended IllIll-structured Iterative Documented Design Methodology
Clarification of Design Task Conceptual Design Preliminary Design Detailed Design and Documentation
Engineering Education Who Does Design? CS & ECE AOE ME CEE
Boeing, 787 Dreamliner ISE CHE & MSE
Engineering Education 4 Rationale for Learning Design
Methodology for Approaching All Types of Design Problems
How to scope open-ended problems How to think critically How to deal with uncertainty Applicable to all types of engineering problems Prescriptive Method for Design Creativity and innovation Selection amongst alternatives Teaming Planning
Engineering Education Conceptual Tools Design Project Spring 2008
Working with actual community clients Through VT Engage and Service-Learning Center Using teams of 5 or 6 engineering students Having a sustainable future as a theme Research organizations' energy and resource use profile and design solutions or other client negotiated projects Executive summaries of progress, presentations, and poster session Engineering Education Learning Objectives for Design Project
Understand the engineering design process Demonstrate basic project management Communicate engineering information Participate in a major team design project
Improve ability to work in a team Improve negotiating skills Improve interpersonal communication skills Improve relationship between VT campus and the community Participate in VT Engage and Service-Learning Have Fun with engineering design
Engineering Education 5 Rationale for Learning Algorithm Development
An algorithm is a step by step set of instructions Upper level courses in most departments will require the use of a computer to generate results (answers) for some problems. Even engineers who don't routinely write programs themselves should have a basic understanding of the constructs used in programming. Engineering Education Learning Objectives
Demonstrate the ability to write computer programs for engineering analysis
if Best ==1 %determine the linear constants [m,b] = LSR(X,Y,N); %calculate Y values on best fit line and plot for J = 1:1:N Yfit(J) = m*X(J)+b; end figure(1) plot(X,Yfit,'-'); hold on plot(X,Y,'o') plot(X,Y,'.') xlabel(Xtext) ylabel(Ytext) title(Ttext) %output equation fprintf('\nThe equation of the best fit line is:') fprintf('\n %s = %.3f %s + %.3f',Yname,m,Xname,b) fprintf('\n for %s in %s, %s in %s\n',Xname,Xunit,Yname,Yunit) Engineering Education Required Texts, Software, Equipment

Education 7 Appropriate use of computers Using IM or email, playing games, watching movies, and surfing the web are inappropriate activities during class time. Professional Background and Screen Savers Keep virus protection updated. If electronic submission is required a file with virus earns a 0. Engineering Education Computer Problems It is assumed that you own a computer that 2007meets the College of Engineering 2007-08 computer requirements
No accommodations will be made for students who do not. If you experience computer problems
Contact SWAT (http://swat.eng.vt.edu)
confirmation of problem, help, loaners Other resources see Course Policy on BB
Engineering Education Homework
Neatness and format count! Homework not submitted when collected is LATE.
Late homework will be accepted only with suitable proof of extenuating circumstances (such as illness) Each student will be offered a one time exception Late work must be submitted to your workshop leader prior to your next lecture. Lowest homework grade will be dropped. Homework is to be completed individually unless otherwise stated.
Engineering Education 8 Quizzes and Class-work ClassclassExpect a quiz and/or graded class-work each week With appropriate documentation, Students who miss a quiz or graded class exercise will be excused or asked to do a makeup
Requests to be excused must be submitted to your workshop leader within one week of the absence quiz/classThe lowest quiz/class-work grade will be dropped
Engineering Education Other Expectations Bring appropriate supplies to class Check BB for announcements Read email from the instructional team Be professional: on time attendance, refrain from distracting side conversations, no cell phones in class, appropriate screen savers, know and spell your workshop leader's and team members' names correctly Embrace the VT Principles of Community
