As a recent Penn State graduate, I wanted to share a curriculum resource from Gary Neal. Gary is a professor at Penn State and he teaches ME442W and ME443W. They are a yearlong senior capstone design courses working on EcoCAR 3, a DOE and GM sponsored engineering project to build a hybrid 2016 Chevrolet Camaro. They are Advanced Vehicle Team and has participated in the competition since 1988.
It is a great example of how a classroom implements the real-world project to prepare students to become the next generation of professional engineers. Michael Paul, director of Lunar Lion, said he used Gary’s ME443W syllabus as a model to create his own. If anyone has curriculum to share, please post here.
