The objectives of this project are to demonstrate that (a) it is practical and feasible to offer engineering undergraduate students a course on Web-based Instrumentation and Control (WIC) that involves recent technological innovations; (b) the proposed course can be effectively conducted with two integrated components: classroom lecturing and hands-on practice through a remote setting; and (c) the course materials can also be offered after modification to gifted high school students and, thus, be used as a vehicle to attract students to engineering disciplines.

Since July 1, 2002 (the official starting date of the project), we have been actively involved in developing the WIC Laboratory. After the laboratory is set up, it will have 10 workstations that are inter-connected via campus LAN. Each workstation will consist of a PC, a data acquisition board, and other instruments. A web server and a process server will run on every workstation. A number of web cameras will be installed in the lab. Students will be able to conduct WIC experiments, and Internet users will be able to navigate to the lab site to witness the progress of the laboratory development. We plan to offer an undergraduate course on WIC in the coming summer semester.
