Project Based Instruction in Manufacturing: A New Approach

David A. Lopez Central Michigan University

This paper will describe the instruction methodology of an undergraduate course in manufacturing which was restructured to use small “hands-on” projects as a basis instruction. the course was previously taught using a methodology of sequentially presented lecture material. the revised course divides the class into teams of student and has each team completely analyze an entire product by dissecting the product into its various component parts. An engineering report is written by each student team and submitted for evaluation of each project.
