The early objective of this project was to study how professional practices relate to nominally similar practices in university engineering classes, and how any continuities and discontinuities between work and school might inform efforts to design engineering classes. More recently our efforts have focused on how prototyping is used in industry and how its use is taught in engineering courses. This project was in collaboration with Dr. Daria Kotys-Schwartz in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at CU-Boulder. Project funding and recent peer-reviewed papers are listed below.
