ASE 333T- Fall 2008 Team Project Packet Team Projects From this point on in the course, in addition to your remaining individual assignments, you will be working with 3 or 4 other students as a team. Here is the scenario: Recently, our clients requested project proposals about engineering failures/accidents that warrant further investigation because of the importance of the potential and/or actual “lessons learned”. The individual proposals have been submitted, and after reviewing them, our clients will select the finalists. The abstracts of the selected proposals will be posted on Bb by Wednesday, 10/15 at 10 am. Read through the abstracts and decide which projects you’d most like to work on. By Thursday, 10/16 at noon , send an email to your supervisors (Elisabeth and me) with your top 3 picks. List the title of each project and write 2-3 sentences for each pick explaining why you would like to work on this particular project, and what you would bring to the project team. (Please see PHRG pp.54-55 for guidelines on email communications.) Teams will be assigned in class on 10/17 .
