Bodnar, Cheryl A.; Hixson, Cory – Advances in Engineering Education, 2018
Despite an increased focused on developing and understanding engineering undergraduates' entrepreneurial mindsets, best practices related to assessing this mindset remain nascent. In an attempt to evaluate concept mapping as a potential assessment tool for entrepreneurial mindset and identify the knowledge, skills, and attitudes (KSAs) first-year…

Korte, Russell; Smith, Karl A.; Li, Cheryl Qing – Advances in Engineering Education, 2018
Entrepreneurship education has become an important feature in many programs across higher education--especially in engineering education. A common goal of entrepreneurship education is developing an entrepreneurial mindset in students. Furthermore, a key competency of an entrepreneurial mindset is the ability to empathize with others. Empathy is a…

McPheron, Benjamin D.; Thangaraj, Charles V.; Thomas, Charles R. – Advances in Engineering Education, 2017
Laboratory courses can be difficult to fit into an engineering program at a liberal arts-focused university, which requires students to be exposed to appropriate breadth, as well as sufficient depth in their engineering education. One possible solution to this issue is to integrate laboratory exercises with lecture in a "studio" format,…

Khan, Fazeel; Singh, Kumar – Advances in Engineering Education, 2015
Engineers often need to predict how a part, mechanism or machine will perform in service, and this insight is typically achieved thorough computer simulations. Therefore, instruction in the creation and application of simulation models is essential for aspiring engineers. The purpose of this project was to develop a unified approach to teaching…

Martín, Francisco Javier Ferrero; Martínez, Alberto López; Llopis, Marta Valledor; Rodriguez, Juan Carlos Campo; Viejo, Cecilio Blanco; Vershinin, Yuri A. – Advances in Engineering Education, 2015
Ongoing technological progress in measurement systems triggered the development of an in­novative, hands-on teaching program to help students toward a fuller understanding of recent changes in the field. This paper presents a lab project that links theoretical principles with the practical issues of signal conditioning systems. This is…

Neumeyer, Xaver; Chen, Wei; McKenna, Ann F. – Advances in Engineering Education, 2013
Understanding the global, societal, environmental and economic (GSEE) context of a product, process or system is critical to an engineer's ability to design and innovate. The already packed curricula in engineering programs provide few occasions to offer meaningful experiences to address this issue, and most departments delegate this requirement…

Khalaf, Kinda; Balawi, Shadi; Hitt, George Wesley; Radaideh, Ahmad – Advances in Engineering Education, 2013
This paper presents an innovative, interdisciplinary, design-and-build course created to improve placement, content, and pedagogy for introductory engineering design education. Infused at the freshman level, the course aims to promote expert design thinking by using problem-based learning (PBL) as the mode of delivery. The course is structured to…

Benenson, Gary; Stewart-Dawkins, Shawndel; White, Gwynn – Advances in Engineering Education, 2012
In spite of numerous calls for action, e.g., Executive Office of the President (2010), there have been few efforts nationally to promote engineering education in the elementary grades. Of these, hardly any have targeted underrepresented populations (National Academy of Engineering, 2009, p. 74). The collaboration described in this paper is a…

Veltman, Melanie; Davidson, Valerie; Deyell, Bethany – Advances in Engineering Education, 2012
In this work, we describe youth outreach activities carried out under the Chair for Women in Science and Engineering for Ontario (CWSE-ON) program. Specifically, we outline our design and implementation of robotics workshops to introduce and engage middle and secondary school students in engineering and computer science. Toward the goal of…

Cogger, Steven D.; Miley, Daniel H. – Advances in Engineering Education, 2012
This paper proposes that project-based active learning is a key part of engineering education at the middle school level. One project from a comprehensive middle school engineering curriculum developed by the authors is described to show how active learning and state frameworks can coexist. The theoretical basis for learning and assessment in a…

Daniels, John L.; Wood, Sally L.; Kemnitzer, Susan C. – Advances in Engineering Education, 2011
Engineering education directly supports the nation's capacity for economic growth, infrastructure renewal, and security, as well as environmental and human health. Numerous reports have recommended federal support to advance our understanding of how students learn, how faculty teach, and how teaching and learning are assessed. The U.S. National…

Bannerot, Richard; Kastor, Ross; Ruchhoeft, Paul – Advances in Engineering Education, 2010
In this paper we identify some of the issues and problems that we confronted while developing a new, one-semester, interdepartmental, multidisciplinary capstone design course. We implemented the following changes to the pre-existing capstone design course: (1) Utilized a website to enhance information transfer, (2) Modularized the course and…
