Electrical Engineering Practicum, Third Edition

>> View Now!

 

The Electrical Engineering Practicum provides a hands-on path to exploring the fascinating world of electronics. Each of the fifteen lectures introduces the student to a new electronic device or technology and an associated application. A follow-on laboratory exercise is then conducted individually by the student anytime, anywhere, using their own Personal Test Lab. An online video teaching assistant is provided to assist the student with each lab exercise. In university settings, the lab exercise is then demonstrated by the student to an instructor in small lab sections. No previous experience in electronics is required for your students.

Teaching in our Virtual World

>> View Now!

 

The world is facing an extraordinary crisis in the form of COVID-19. We hope you agree the current focus is to continue FPGA learnings through virtual platforms. Joined by Professor Luo, UMASS Lowell Electrical Engineering and Tyler Sheaves, a UC Davis PhD program Intel student intern, this session covers a range of topics utilizing Intel FPGAs that assist digital electronics training in our virtual teaching world, including: curriculum materials for digital electronics using FPGAs coursework overview, setting up a virtual/remote lab using Intel FPGA Development boards, and an example of current virtual/remote lab teaching experience - teaching and research of heterogeneous computing with the Intel FPGA Development Cloud.

Online Fall Courses Need Not Be a Consolation Prize: 4 Things That Yield Students Who LOVE an Online Class
>> View Now!

“The online format works really well and is even better than taking an in-person class. I absolutely loved this class.” That's a real quote from a student in an online CS1 at UC Riverside, and evaluation comments from other students are similar. Online courses need not be a consolation prize if in-person classes can't be offered this fall. Instead, online courses have unique advantages that, if capitalized upon, can not only yield grades similar to in-person classes, but also very satisfied students, and instructors too. This presentation summarizes what we've learned at zyBooks and at UC Riverside (where we've taught online CS1 since 2013) on how to teach online classes that students don't just tolerate, but that they truly enjoy and thrive in.

Engineering in an Era of Complex Systems of Systems, Autonomy, and AI
>> View Now!

 

Innovative business models and massive new industries are being created around and within complex ecosystems that aggregate different technologies and platforms, collect-crunch-digest massive amounts of data, and use federated/distributed intelligence through ubiquitous sensing, connectivity and computing. The role of the ECE discipline is key for overcoming these challenges and finding the corresponding novel solutions; a new generation of engineering professionals (with emphasis on ECE) will be required to design, develop, install, operate and maintain complex “systems of systems” that are part of larger ecosystems where multiple actors participate and success results from the collaborative effort between them. Innovative engineering education programs and translational research will help to prepare the future engineering professionals that will respond to these and other challenges. Given the complexity of the potential solutions, we explore different pathways and approaches that could help to accelerate the development of those solutions with an active participation of academia, including faculty, students and the larger engineering community.

Designing Engineering Labs for the Post COVID-19 Era
>> View Now!

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced the entire global academic community to reflect on the way we deliver instruction and the way students engage in the various modes of learning. Most institutions are performing admirably as they quickly migrate as much as possible to on-line forms. One major dimension of modern engineering education, however, remains stubbornly elusive to on-line treatment -- hands-on labs and projects. Quanser, better known for its advanced hardware in modern robotics, mechatronics, and control is collaborating with several leading universities in the Digital Transformation initiative that aims to develop a series of high-fidelity lab virtualizations that provide meaningful experiential learning off-campus. Moreover, Digital Transformation is an integrated methodology and platforms designed to quickly adapt a broad range of topics within ECE and other disciplines. This webinar will provide an overview of the method, technology, and current progress. It will also provide information on how more institutions can participate.

ABET Update: Accreditation in Response to COVID-19
>> View Now!

 

This session will summarize how best to address ABET accreditation within the context of academic program response to the novel coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. ABET’s Chief Accreditation Officer, Dr. Joe Sussman, and Senior Director of Accreditation Operations, Jane Emmet, will discuss modifications to ABET operations and how these modifications will affect program reviews, acknowledging the current delivery changes to academic programs that have affected teaching and learning. In addition, Dr. Sussman and Ms. Emmet will answer questions regarding how best to prepare for ABET accreditation given the current status of academic program offerings at institutions around the globe. This session will summarize recent updates, and we especially encourage participation from programs with ABET visits planned for Fall 2020. Please bring your ABET leaders to this session.

From Makerspace to “Systerspace” – Building Systems-Thinking into Design Projects of Authentic Complexity
>> View Now!

 

A Systerspace is a project-based learning strategy based on system integration as opposed to conventional design and building (i.e. Makerspace). It is a new Quanser framework to provide a pragmatic and efficient platform for introducing contemporary system-oriented applications such as autonomous systems, cyber-physical systems, machine learning, Industry 4.0 etc. into the undergraduate curriculum.
