Module-based teaching of mechanical design
MetadataShow full item record
Teaching engineering in the context of practical problems has been suggested as a way to motivate and interest students. By module-based teaching, it is possible to make the contents easier for the students to imbibe and to highlight the interdisciplinary nature of mechanical design. The purposes of this chapter are to describe (i) five modules for introducing Mechanical Design courses in Mechanical Engineering, (ii) the differences in emphases of the modules, (iii) the most important aspects of the modules, (iv) student reactions to the module-based teaching approach and (v) student reactions in terms of the ease of learning. It was found that module-based teaching of mechanical design improves learning ability and students’ satisfaction significantly.
