Initiate Instruction in Manufacturing Systems Engineering by Industrial and Government Experts over NTU Satellite Network.
Baldwin, Lionel V.
Based on the assumption that there is a need for advanced education among both new graduates of programs for manufacturing engineers and currently practicing engineers, a National Technological University (NTU) project produced instructional modules on manufacturing engineering topics developed by industrial, government, consulting, and academic experts. The learning modules were presented live and interactively via the NTU satellite network. A set of computer-produced visuals accompanied each module, and videotapes were made so that instruction can be edited and/or reused at a later date. The narrative report on this project provides an overview of the project as well as discussions of its purpose, its background and origins, and its results. Universities participating in the NTU network are listed as are the NTU network sponsoring sites. A complete list of more than 80 course topics and dates of presentation is also provided together with a participation summary. Appended materials, which make up the major part of the report, contain descriptive information about individual courses, including the presenter(s) and the schedule for live satellite broadcasts.
