TOWARD A NEW PARADIGM IN TEACHING EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN AND ANALYSIS

As suggested by current and proposed ABET guidelines, numerous engineering educators, and by our own advisory committee of practitioners, an expansion of laboratory experiences in the undergraduate curriculum is needed to better prepare Civil and Environmental Engineering students for professional practice. In particular for Civil and Environmental Engineers, this lab experience must satisfy complex needs: to expose students to large, often noisy, but very practical data sets, to give them hands-on access to state of the art methods in data acquisition and control and to educate them in the utility of non-destructive real time measurement techniques. Given the nature of civil and environmental work, field rather than strictly-lab-based experiences are crucial. This is a radical departure from conventional undergraduate pedagogy.
