Okamoto, Nicole; Hsu, Tai-Ran; Bash, Cullen E.
Advances in Engineering Education, v1 n3 Win 2009
A novel thermal management of electronics course with an associated laboratory has been developed for mechanical, electrical, and computer engineering students. The lecture topics, term project, computer modeling project, and six associated experiments that were built from scratch are described. Over half of the course lectures as well as all lab manuals and project information are made available via the course website. Pre- and post-tests were performed and analyzed using a t-test and showed a significant increase in student understanding in fundamental thermal management problems.
