Teaching methodology for project team

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Students from Engineering Technology Programs should be able to work as members of Project Teams with Engineers to help find solutions to technical problems. Come and learn the methodology for problem solving by participating on a project team to derive solutions to an actual electromechanical design problem using a hematology analyzer from industry. This exercise will utilize the methods actually used by a project team from a Biomedical Instrumentation Corporation in which both engineers and technicians from various disciplines participated. The steps involved will consist of the following: 1. Determine the nature of the problem and create specifications. 2. Brainstorming to compile a list of possible solutions. 3. Select three best possible solutions. 4. Sketch one of the solutions. 5. Suggest ways to test solutions. This method can be used in any number of technology courses and will help the student prepare for problem solving and working in a team environment.
