Abstract

Machine design is one of the core courses in any mechanical engineering program across the world. This paper presents three different approaches taken by faculty at three different regional universities in the United States with similar small class size, low student-teacher ratio, and comparable cost of attendance. We examine the pedagogical approach, course content, desired outcomes, and assessment of outcomes at three different universities to identify the desired balance between traditional, analysis-based outcomes and those targeted towards practice-based skills.
