Through a grant from the NSF, we have developed a games-based virtual lab simulation for the Strength of Materials lab for civil engineering students. The virtual lab is a visual recreation of three course labs, the Tension Test, Torsion Test, and Poisson’s Ratio Test. By using the simulation, a number of scenarios can be virtually shown to students that would normally not be tested in a lab due to cost and safety concerns. Using strategic interface design aesthetics, we project that the 3D games-based learning environment will result in improved learning and reduced costs to engineering programs. V ... (continued)

The Engineering Co-op Program at the University of British Columbia, the largest such program in Western Canada, secures co-op work term opportunities from 1,400-1,500 students annually, of which 8-12% work in more than 30 countries. Preparing globally minded engineering students for industry is a key facet of the program. International co-op work term experiences develop student’s intercultural skills and prepare them to be true global citizens. Engineering co-op students who attain an international experience are better prepared for today’s industries, have broader career choices after graduation, ... (continued)

Students often have difficulty generating multiple creative ideas for design problems. “Design Heuristics” is an empirically derived and validated approach to product design ideation; our research has shown that concepts created by engineering students who used Design Heuristics were more complex, creative designs. This workshop will include a review of relevant research on idea generation and an introduction to this research-grounded creativity tool. Participants will practice using the Design Heuristics to generate concepts for design tasks and discuss ways to implement it effectively in their classrooms.
