Experimentation and Laboratory-Oriented Studies
In the past, the project courses at IUPUI do not have any metrics to measure their success in a real world environment. We recently allowed several capstone design teams to perform Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) student design competitions as their projects. The outcome and benefit of the change are clear. The students are more motivated and willing to adopt new technologies in their project courses. Through competitions, students learn how to complete the project in the context of system. Performing these competitions 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. To assess the impact of these changes, we provide a summary of the student work. We interviewed students about their experiences. We also coded student work and interviews using qualitative analysis methods.
