Enhancement of Green Energy Manufacturing Engineering Education through Project Based Learning and Leadership WorkshopsThis paper describes enhancement of green energy and manufacturing subjects using a projectbased learning and leadership workshops as an educational strategy in a new manufacturingengineering program. There are a number of challenges facing green energy manufacturing fromindustrial perspective. For example, green energy manufacturing is a complex and technology-concentrated set of processes; therefore, it requires a very specialized and experienced workforce.In this paper, a LEGO based project and various “Green Energy Manufacturing (GEM)” leadershipworkshops which are used to enhance student’s professional success are introduced. Basically, asemester long GEM project using LEGO and a few general and technical leadership workshopswere arranged and delivered during the Industrial, Manufacturing and Systems Engineering(IMSE) Day. The paper is aimed at integrating green energy into the manufacturing engineeringcurriculum and to cultivate leaders in the field among minority and female engineering students.Successful completion of the course will lead to excellence in green energy and advancedengineering education.
