Byggen av papper drillar blivande ingenjörer

Att skapa fungerande maskiner av wellpapp, tejp och lim kan vara en rejäl utmaning som bjuder på många lärdomar för blivande ingenjörer. Förstaårsstudenterna inom maskinteknik och industriell ekonomi fick i uppdrag att på mindre än ett dygn konstruera, bygga och testa kastmaskiner.  Dessa skulle inom givna begränsningar i material och vikt  på bästa vis klara av […]

WORK INTEGRATION SOCIAL ENTERPRISES: A TESTBED FOR CHALLENGE-BASED LEARNING?

ABSTRACT Work Integration Social Enterprises (WISE) are a particular enterprise form permeated by a so-called ‘double business idea’. Besides the commercial imperative of providing product and services, WISE offer employment and training opportunities for individuals considered less able to compete in mainstream labour markets. The paper argues that this multiple goal structure makes WISE an […]

Introducing value driven design in engineering education: teaching the use of value models in preliminary design

ABSTRACT Methods and approaches for teaching engineering disciplines are evolving to adapt to the needs of companies and society. Engineering Design is one of the areas most influenced by such changes and constantly striving to develop more effective and efficient strategies to prepare the soon-to-be engineers to face the challenges of a real working environment. […]

A Reverse Engineering Role-Play to Teach Systems Engineering Methods

ABSTRACT Students engaged in systems engineering education typically lack experience and understanding of the multidisciplinary complexity of systems engineering projects. Consequently, students struggle to understand the value, rationale, and usefulness of established systems engineering methods, often perceiving them as banal or trivial. The paper presents a learning activity based on a three-stage reverse engineering role-play […]
