Congratulations to Professors Peter Zink (ME, MSE) and Enrique Gutierrez-Wing, who have received Course Innovation awards from the Center for Excellence and Innovation Teaching!
The funding will go towards improving two very important Mechanical Engineering courses, Automation and Manufacturing Methods (ME 345) and Product Design (ME 360), by way of purchasing new equipment and a redesign of hands-on projects for students.
ME 345 will receive updated lab exercises and pre lab lectures to fit the recently acquired new equipment, including two new CNC machining centers, a CNC lathe, and three collaborative-industrial robotic arms . ME 360 will see changes in the form of obtaining materials for more
complex projects where students will work with area public schools.
