Engineering education is currently on the verge of a major transformation. However, while the need has been much discussed and several proposals for change have been put forward, relatively little focus has been put on actual implementation of the proposed changes. This book examines a program that has a long history of experimentation in engineering education. Written by experts on the subject, it describes specific topics with each chapter focusing on a specific innovation that has been carried out and explaining the educational pedagogy the learning benefit, as well as the transferability of the approach.
Grtar Tryggvason was the head of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), before accepting his present position as the Viola D. Hank Professor of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering at the University of Notre Dame. He is well known for his contributions to computational fluid dynamics, particularly the development of methods for multiphase flows and for direct numerical simulations of such flows. He is the Editor in Chief of the Journal of Computational Physics, and a Fellow of the APS and ASME. Diran Apelian is the Howmet Professor of Engineering and Director of the Metal Processing Institute at WPI. He is well known for his contributions to the field of solidification processing of light metals. During the past decade, he has focused on sustainable development, and is the founding director of the NSF Center for Resource Recovery and Recycling. He is past president of TMS, an NAE member, and a Fellow of TMS, APMI, and ASM.
