Abstract

This paper combines two bodies of engineering education work aimed at improving the undergraduate engineering classroom experience for industrial and mechanical engineering students. The integration of these two bodies of work has led researchers to propose a framework for maximizing undergraduate engineering student motivation, satisfaction, and performance. The "Interact, Cultivate, Deliver" or I-C-D methodology has been shown to significantly increase undergraduate industrial engineering student ratings of teaching effectiveness when compared to industrial engineering courses where the I-C-D methodology is not formally implemented. Decreasing student anxiety while improving student self-recognition, cognitive value, and intrinsic value have been shown to be the driving factors behind student motivation among undergraduate mechanical engineering students. Along with discussing the results of both studies, an optimal teaching methodology dubbed "Interact, Cultivate, Deliver, Motivate" or I-C-D-M methodology is proposed to maximize student motivation and satisfaction leading to increased engineering student retention and performance.
