Dahle, Reena; Hart, Sean; Hart, Kevin – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2019
Contribution: A semester-long project, geared towards a multidisciplinary group of undergraduate engineering students, to design and simulate a large-scale microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) 2-D optical scanner is presented. Background: MEMS component design and fabrication typically requires a cleanroom and costly high-vacuum equipment; these…

Dahle, Reena; Rasel, Rafiul – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2016
This paper presents a series of course modules developed as a high-impact and cost-effective learning tool for modeling and simulating the microfabrication process and design of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) devices using three-dimensional (3-D) printing. Microfabrication technology is an established fabrication technique for small and…

Cui, Weili; Jones, Wayne E., Jr.; Klotzkin, David; Myers, Greta L.; Wagoner, Shawn; White, Bruce – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2015
Microfabrication is a critical area to many branches of science and engineering. However, to many students accustomed to seeing transistors as things that come in a lab kit, it is an obscure subtopic of their discipline. Beginning in 2009, the authors undertook a broad multidisciplinary approach to bring microfabrication into all aspects of the…

McLurkin, J.; Rykowski, J.; John, M.; Kaseman, Q.; Lynch, A. J. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2013
This paper describes the experiences of using an advanced, low-cost robot in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education. It presents three innovations: It is a powerful, cheap, robust, and small advanced personal robot; it forms the foundation of a problem-based learning curriculum; and it enables a novel multi-robot…

Vanfretti, L.; Milano, F. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2012
This paper describes how the use of free and open-source software (FOSS) can facilitate the application of constructive alignment theory in power systems engineering education by enabling the deep learning approach in power system analysis courses. With this aim, this paper describes the authors' approach in using the Power System Analysis Toolbox…
