  • CSU ECE NSF Grant - Electrical and Computer Engineering - College of Engineering - Colorado State University
    educational system fails in two fundamentally critical ways the CSU researchers say in their abstract First students who have the desire and aptitude to become accomplished and productive engineers are abandoning the discipline in startling numbers Second students who graduate are frequently not prepared for the realities of their chosen profession and are switching careers at alarming rates De Miranda who has a joint appointment in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering explained that the new educational approach will include the use of learning studio modules where students learn in teams doing hands on work and knowledge integration modules in which multiple fields will be taught at the same time Students have been taking some courses in isolation they don t know why they re there and the relevance of what they learn said Tom Chen a co investigator and professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering We need to do a better job of connecting the dots for them with applications students are familiar with such as cell phones Faculty evaluation The project titled Revolutionizing Roles to Reimagine Integrated Systems of Engineering Formation will also involve revamping the way that faculty in the department are evaluated and rewarded Professor Tony Maciejewski head of the department and principal investigator on the project said it s rare for the NSF to spearhead such a sweeping transformation beyond just a course or a curriculum to change the culture of an entire engineering department He described the traditional course structure as stovepipes A student goes to the math department for calculus then to the physics department then here for their circuits class Maciejewski said Nobody makes the connections between those three things And chances are those three faculty will not talk to each other and don t know what the others are teaching There is not enough coordination The structure Three threads each headed by a faculty member will run through the new curriculum Foundations Creativity and Professionalism In the new format the basic math and science coursework won t be front loaded at the beginning of the curriculum but woven throughout the program when it is needed so that students always know why they are learning something Maciejewski said one hope is to hook students interest earlier to improve retention Instead of saving most of the research and innovation until students senior design project applications to the real world will be incorporated into all four years Waiting until the senior year for that is way too late you ve already lost two thirds of your students he said The new curriculum will also focus more on soft skills that engineers need beyond technical expertise in areas like communication ethics social impact and interaction in large diverse groups One of the other co investigators CSU psychology Professor Zinta Byrne specializes in organizational culture and change management She is in charge of helping the overhaul go smoothly and assessing how the changes affect faculty and students She said keys include strong communication a good

  • Eco Car 3 - Electrical and Computer Engineering - College of Engineering - Colorado State University
    efficient high performance vehicle A partnership between the ECE department and mechanical engineering the team is competing in EcoCAR3 a multi year engineering competition that challenges participants across the country to reduce the environmental impact of transportation With more than 300 applicants for EcoCAR3 Colorado State was one of 16 universities selected for the national competition which is sponsored by the U S Department of Energy and General Motors The CSU team will work to convert a Chevrolet Camaro into a hybrid electric car that gets better gas mileage and emits fewer greenhouse gases but still maintains the performance and safety of the iconic American muscle car ECE Associate Professor Sudeep Pasricha is advising undergraduate and graduate students on the controller design and the advanced driver assistance system of the car supporting features like pedestrian tracking lane tracking and automatic parking Electrical and computer engineering touches nearly every facet of modern life and this project is a great example of the important role our discipline plays in the future of the automotive industry said ECE Professor Sudeep Pasricha Electronics and embedded systems are becoming one of the biggest innovations in emerging automotive products It is pretty exciting for our students
