Simmons, Denise R.; Lord, Susan M. – Advances in Engineering Education, 2019
Supporting diverse students in engineering education is considered a critical unsolved issue facing engineering education. The field continues to suffer from a lack of diversity and struggles to recruit and retain underrepresented students. We argue that structural barriers prevent equitable participation. In this paper, we examine structural…

Martin, Lee; Dixon, Colin – Advances in Engineering Education, 2019
There is growing interest in the engineering education community in "making" and the Maker Movement as a context for young people to learn and develop interest around design and early engineering competencies. Although some researchers argue that making has the potential to serve a liberating and anti-oppressive function in education,…

Ogilvie, Andrea M.; Knight, David B. – Advances in Engineering Education, 2019
To make the transfer student pathway viable to meet workforce needs, it is essential to think beyond simply linking two institutions and getting students in the door--students need to be supported throughout the adjustment period. In this article, we address the "support" aspect of the problem by reporting findings from 306 engineering…

Streiner, Scott Charles; Bodnar, Cheryl Anne – Advances in Engineering Education, 2019
Implementation of educational innovations on a local scale requires consideration of a variety of different factors including stakeholders, curriculum design, classroom context, and culture. Although theories exist for dimensions of scale and diffusion of educational innovations across multiple institutions, they do not focus on the elements…

Laugerman, Marcia; Rover, Diane; Mickelson, Steve; Shelley, Mack – Advances in Engineering Education, 2019
Increasing the number of transfers and graduates in engineering who start at community colleges (CC) requires strategic partnering between institutions. Reflecting on the results of a five-year partnership between a large, multi-location CC and a large four-year university, we present the goals, conceptual framework, specific results, and best…

Knight, David B.; Davis, Kirsten A.; Kinoshita, Timothy J.; Twyman, Catherine; Ogilvie, Andrea M. – Advances in Engineering Education, 2019
Multiple reports suggest that future engineering work will be conducted by globally diverse teams for globally diverse customers. Despite the demonstrated benefits of study abroad opportunities to develop such global competencies, undergraduate engineers participate at low rates. The Rising Sophomore Abroad Program presented in this paper…

Rafique, Muhammad Usman; Mohammed, Aquil Mirza; Li, Shuai; Khan, Ameer Tamoor; Kadry, Seifedine – Advances in Engineering Education, 2019
Consumer electronics are creating huge job markets for graduates with the programming back-ground, and more and more computer science departments are launching embedded software subjects to meet this demand. However, most students majoring computer science do not have the background in electronics, or even circuits. Due to this reason, how to…

Reck, Rebecca M.; Sreenivas, R. S.; Loui, Michael C. – Advances in Engineering Education, 2019
Laboratory kits allow students to take home laboratory equipment to complete experiments on their own time. Because of the lower cost, laboratory kits expand access to hands-on experiences for online courses and to budget-strapped campuses. Although students like laboratory kits, no previous studies compared student learning objectives on…

Constans, Eric; Bhatia, Krishan; Kadlowec, Jennifer; Merrill, Thomas; Zhang, Hong; Angelone, Bonnie – Advances in Engineering Education, 2019
This paper describes the use of a large-scale, multi-semester design project as a means of integrating six courses in the mechanical engineering curriculum. The project, a bench-scale hybrid powertrain, is built up -- component by component -- as students advance through the curriculum. The authors used the project to test two research hypotheses:…
