Problems from Industry, adopting the Instructional Model of Inquiry and Problem-based Learning
Each Problems from Industry course is designed to engage students with an authentic problem rooted in content (machine vision industry) and have them analyze, research, and study the problem. Students, through authentic experiences and collaboration propose solutions to the problem(s) presented. Students will be guided in using robotic and vision equipment in their solutions while incorporating the Engineering Design Process. Students present their findings and solutions to a panel of experts (and parents) and receive critical feedback to be able to rethink and redesign their solutions and findings. A second iteration is key to student development.
