Experimentation and Laboratory-Oriented Studies
We recently developed a new project-based 3D printing module in general engineering curriculum. Specifically, students are required to make a drone using 3D printed components. The revised engineering course with the new module has received extensive interests and positive feedback from students. They learned how to apply the fundamentals, applications, and implications of 3D printing or additive manufacturing (AM) in a real-world project. Altering curriculum with these projects requires adequate laboratory and shop space, as well as adequate funding. This paper will address these challenges, and provide justification for continued participation in these competitions. A summary of the student work will be provided. Students were interviewed about their 3d project experiences. Using qualitative analysis methods we will provide the results of this effort.
