visit author page

Ghassan T. Kridli is Professor and Associate Dean for Undergraduate Education at the College of Engineering and Computer Science of the University of Michigan-Dearborn. He teaches graduate and undergraduate level courses in the area of design and manufacturing. Ghassan leads the effort in program assessment for continuous improvement and is active in curriculum development. In addition, he is active in promoting engineering education to underrepresented groups.

Ghassan’s research focuses on the application of fundamental engineering knowledge in the design and manufacture of sheet metal products of lightweight alloys. His work has significant industrial applicability and includes mechanical and metallurgical characterization of light alloys coupled with numerical models for predicting the material formability.

Ghassan received his Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Miami in 1986 and 1988, respectively, and his Ph.D. from the University of Missouri in 1997. Since then he has been a faculty member in the Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering department at the University of Michigan-Dearborn.

Abstract

Abstract for NSF Grantees’ Poster Session at the 2018 ASEE Conference

S-STEM Scholarship Program in Manufacturing: First Three Years’ Experience at the University of Michigan-Dearborn

The S-STEM scholarship program at the University of Michigan-Dearborn has the objective of offering the STEM scholarship to academically talented, financially needy undergraduate students pursuing manufacturing engineering as their career path. The key goal of this program is to provide academic experience and professional activities that are needed for developing leadership quality in the manufacturing field. It was granted in 2015, and now it is in its third year of existence. It started with only two students in the first year, but currently has 19 students who are receiving this scholarship.

This paper describes the first three years’ experience of developing and managing the program. It includes the recruitment process, cohort building activities, academic support, mentoring effort and evaluation process that have been developed for this program. Problems encountered in managing the program due to student attitude, participation and performance are described. The efforts to overcome these problems include short seminars on student success and goal setting, development of an on-line communication portal and self-assessment worksheet. The learning experiences gained from these efforts are also described in the paper.
