Senior Design: Learning to Construct
Prof. Ashutosh Sabharwal (Electrical and Computer Engineering, Rice University)
Engineering curricula is a collection of advanced but seemingly disconnected concepts. As a result, most students graduate with little or no sense of how to even begin solving a real-world engineering challenge. At Rice, we have revamped our year-long course on Senior Design and the associated support courses, to challenge our traditional way of things. Now in its third year, the design course has been a resounding success and is now becoming a model for other universities.
