Abstract:
The paper presents initial development of a structure to offer lecture and laboratory experiences in vehicle engineering instruction as an option within existing engineering degree programs. Both Electrical and Mechanical Engineering majors may now complete a concentration option in Vehicle Systems that includes three new, specialized courses that required the development of new laboratory learning experiences. In addition, engineering students in various majors can select one or more of the courses without actually completing the concentration option. The paper focuses on using vehicle engineering as a platform to introduce and reinforce fundamental engineering principles and techniques in an atmosphere that embraces experiential learning in a laboratory environment. The paper will provide an overview of the vehicle engineering concentration with particular emphasis on the integration of laboratory content and initial outcomes assessment. Development of the courses and learning experiences was made possible through the support of several industrial partners.
