Abstract

This paper outlines the process and benefits of using a case analysis poster session in a Miami University undergraduate engineering economics course. Use of a comprehensive case at the end of an engineering economy course allows students to synthesize their learning while applying concepts to a realistic situation. Presentation of analysis and results in a poster session, while developing teamwork and communication skills, provides enhanced opportunities for learning when compared to the standard oral presentation and written report assignment. The process used to incorporate a case analysis poster session into the course is described. Student feedback on the use of a poster session over two semesters is presented.
