An Exploration of the Effectiveness of Product Archeology in an Undergraduate Engineering Curriculum: What Can a Five-Hour Curriculum Do?
Okudan Kremer, Gül E.; Simpson, Timothy W.; Ashour, Omar M.
Advances in Engineering Education, v3 n4 Sum 2013
In this paper, we present our efforts in embedding product archeology inspired curricula into two engineering courses along with assessment results. The assessment focuses on the effectiveness of the embedded curricula in enhancing students' understanding on the global, societal, environmental, and economic (GSEE) implications of engineering design. The results show the significant positive impact of the curricula as perceived by students in comparison to other engineering courses, and thus, is another testament to the fact that carefully crafted curricula can have substantial impact.
