Experiential Learning in Engineering Education.
Harrisberger, Lee; And Others
After a discussion of experiential learning as an element in higher education and of the program evaluation process used in this study, six different but successful experiential learning programs in engineering are described and compared. From these comparisons some conclusions are drawn about important program elements. The six programs described are: the University of Cincinnati Professional Practice Program; the Harvey Mudd College Clinic program; the Kansas State University Mechanical Engineering Design Laboratory; the Worcester Polytechnic Institute PLAN program; the West Virginia University PRIDE (Professional Reasoning Integrated with Design Experience) program; and the University of Massachusetts ESIC (Engineering Services for Industry and Community) program.
