Engineering Technology Laboratory Enhancement with LabVIEW
Engineering Technology (ET) is the application of engineering principles and modern technology to help solve or prevent technical problems. The programs are designed to meet the growing need created by the technology revolution for college-educated problem solvers who can support the engineering process. Thus, the ET program is featured with its emphasis on hands-on skills training, to enable ET students to solve production and system implementation problems and help them explain solutions. Therefore, in order to cater to the industry requirements in the job market, the need for updating the educational infrastructure along with technology trend is urgent in the ET program.
In response to the recognition and support of federal agencies to make progress toward a diverse, competitive and globally engaged US workforce of scientists, engineers, technologists and well prepared citizens, as well as to better fulfill its departmental primary purpose to prepare students for a successful professional career in engineering technology and related fields, authors are now collaborating on 4 external grants, including 3 from NSF and 1 from Dept of Education, to propel the curriculum development and laboratory enhancement. And this paper introduces the current progress and following implementation strategies on the undergraduate laboratory enhancement plan.
