    Cyber-physical systems (CPSs) are the next generation of engineered systems in which computing, communication, and control technologies are tightly integrated. Research on CPSs is fundamentally important for engineered systems in many important application domains such as transportation, energy, and medical systems. We overview CPS research from both a historical point of view in terms of technologies developed for early generations of control systems, as well as recent results on CPSs in many relevant research domains such as networked control, hybrid systems, real-time computing, real-time networking, wireless sensor networks, security, and model-driven development. We outline the potential for CPSs in many societally important application domains. View full abstract»

    Cyber-physical systems (CPSs) couple the cyber aspects of computing and communications tightly with the dynamics and physics of physical systems operating in the world around us. This emerging multidisciplinary frontier will enable revolutionary changes in the way humans live. Just like the Internet has transformed how national economies are intertwined, how humans interact, and how commerce is conducted, CPSs will transform how humans interact with and control the physical environment to the greater benefit of society. Major economic sectors that will see dramatic advances will include transportation, energy, buildings, healthcare, manufacturing, physical infrastructure, agriculture, and defense among others. The CPS community will comprise computer scientists, engineers of all stripes as well as many biologists, chemists, and physicians. The arts will also leverage the innovations of CPSs and inspire even more novel inventions in the scientific and engineering realms that combine the world of computing with the physical world. In short, the cyber-physical world of the future will be both very different and very welcome. View full abstract»

  • Five Major Shifts in 100 Years of Engineering Education

    In this paper, five major shifts in engineering education are identified. During the engineering science revolution, curricula moved from hands-on practice to mathematical modeling and scientific analyses. The first shift was initiated by engineering faculty members from Europe; accelerated during World War II, when physicists contributed multiple engineering breakthroughs; codified in the Grinter report; and kick-started by Sputnik. Did accreditation hinder curricular innovations? Were engineering graduates ready for practice? Spurred by these questions, the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) required engineering programs to formulate outcomes, systematically assess achievement, and continuously improve student learning. The last three shifts are in progress. Since the engineering science revolution may have marginalized design, a distinctive feature of engineering, faculty members refocused attention on capstone and first-year engineering design courses. However, this third shift has not affected the two years in between. Fourth, research on learning and education continues to influence engineering education. Examples include learning outcomes and teaching approaches, such as cooperative learning and inquiry that increase student engagement. In shift five, technologies (e.g., the Internet, intelligent tutors, personal computers, and simulations) have been predicted to transform education for over 50 years; however, broad transformation has not yet been observed. Together, these five shifts characterize changes in engineering education over the past 100 years. View full abstract»

  • Engineering Education Today: Capturing the Afterlife of Sisyphus in Five Snapshots

    Engineering education encompasses students, faculty, the workforce, and the profession of engineering. This paper provides five snapshots that seek to explore the current state of engineering education from different perspectives of scale: the student, the program, policy, society, and technology. The multifaceted view provided by these snapshots indicates that engineering education is a complex, adaptive system that operates on different spatial and temporal scales. These snapshots are intended both to inform and to raise questions for engineering education researchers, practitioners, administrators, and policy makers. Four interlinking themes are found to thread through each of the five perspectives-the philosophical basis for engineering, the role of experience, resources, and change. The paper concludes with exploration of these themes in the context of engineering education today. View full abstract»

    Over the past 20 years, the world has seen significant advances in and adoption of new technology, political events that have led to the opening of formerly closed societies, economic policies that have encouraged free trade, and the growth in multinational companies. These changes have resulted in a world with increased connectedness and interdependencies and a globalization of the workforce. This paper discusses the impact globalization has had on engineering and engineering education. View full abstract»

    No prediction of the future can be done without a good understanding of its history. This paper takes us through the history of entertainment technologies from the beginning of the 19th Century to the current time. We trace the paths taken by two particular content types-motion pictures and television-and along the way, examine several other forces that eventually come together at the beginning of the 21st century to forge a new digital economy for the coming future.
