    The present contribution reports initiative of a relatively new IEEE Student Branch involving students in creative activities that build motivation for their future engineering studies. The IEEE Student Branch at Haldia Institute of Technology has always attempted to put more emphasis on hands-on learning and training for fellow students through various workshops and training sessions. As a part o... View full abstract»

    The purpose of this study is to investigate students' perceptions of their motivation to learn while possessing an avatar alongside the learning activities. The activities include attendance and accessing the course module's eLearning portal. 47 students participated in the study and were divided into two groups: an avatar group and a non-avatar group. Additionally, two research instruments were u... View full abstract»

  • Enhancing capstone design education in civil engineering: The potential synergies between academics and practitioners

    Publication Year: 2011, Page(s):T1F-1 - T1F-6
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (514 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The trend toward increasing design component in civil engineering curricula is part of an effort to better prepare graduates for the practice. While some design projects are still of the “made up” type; majority of projects today deal with “real-world problems” and are usually conducted by student's teams. The paper begins first by briefly reviewing the design as a ... View full abstract»

    The question that the present work addresses is how might we move the engineering profession towards a more encompassing engineering ethic and do it in a way which the practitioners might be receptive to such new ideas? Put another way, how might we develop a new engineering ethic, which focuses more upon the results as evidence by its adoption across the myriad of disciplines rather than the puri...

    Radical changes in the engineering programs at the University of Denver came in 1996 with the advent of ABET EC2000. Prior to EC2000, the engineering programs were developed based on the experience of faculty, the numbers of students and faculty, laboratory resources necessary to deliver the programs, and the accreditation requirements. As disciplinary programs evolved from a general engineering p... View full abstract»

    A competence may be generically defined as the capacity of doing something and is more than just skills or knowledge. A transversal competence is one which can be re-used when shifting to another context. Our goal is to contribute to improve Computer Science 1 (CS1) course's results by the systematic incorporation of activities based on transversal competencies. We designed a set of activities to ...

  • Measuring CS1 perceptions of parallelism

    Publication Year: 2011, Page(s):S3E-1 - S3E-6
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (629 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Educators in Computer Science (CS) generally agree that teaching concurrency can be difficult. CS programs typically offer parallel and distributed computing topics as advanced courses. A potential alternative approach is to provide instruction on parallelism early in the undergraduate curriculum, emphasizing conceptual design rather than implementation issues. This introduction of “paralle... View full abstract»
