Teaching engineering design in a four-course sequence

Kin Fun Li; Fayez Gebali; Michael McGuire 2015 IEEE International Conference on Teaching, Assessment, and Learning for Engineering (TALE), 2015

Engineering design is an art that takes skill, training, knowledge, and effort. It is one of the most difficult subjects to teach at engineering schools. A typical design course requires students to perform design tasks without explanation of the design methodology. With the ever-changing demands of the society and advances of technology, teaching engineering design effectively has become an urgent ...


Designing optimal architecture of neural network with particle swarm optimization techniques specifically for educational dataset

Devika Chhachhiya; Amita Sharma; Manish Gupta 2017 7th International Conference on Cloud Computing, Data Science & Engineering - Confluence, 2017

Designing an optimal Neural Network architecture plays an important role in the performance of a neural network model. In the past few years, various bio- inspired optimization techniques have been applied to find the optimal architecture of a neural network model. In this paper Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) technique has been applied with back propagation algorithm to find an optimal ...


The optical characteristics of the sample based liquid crystal for using radiation detector

Min-seok Yun; Young-bin Kim; Min-woo Kim; Suk-hee Jung; Gi-won Jang; Sang-hee Nam 2009 IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium Conference Record (NSS/MIC), 2009

The digital radiation detectors are used clinically by diagnostic apparatus. However the digital radiation detector has some problem like high operating voltage, light blurring, low conversion efficiency and low fill factor. Thus we propose a new radiation detector that the photoconductor layer and liquid crystal layer are coupled in sandwich structure. X-ray absorption in the photoconductor layer controls the state ...

    Standards are the means by which we construct realities. There are established standards for professional accreditation, the environment, consumer products, animal welfare, the acceptable stress for highway bridges, healthcare, education -- for almost everything. We are surrounded by a vast array of standards, many of which we take for granted but each of which has been and continues to be the subject of intense negotiation. In this book, Lawrence Busch investigates standards as "recipes for reality." Standards, he argues, shape not only the physical world around us but also our social lives and even our selves. Busch shows how standards are intimately connected to power -- that they often serve to empower some and disempower others. He outlines the history of formal standards and describes how modern science came to be associated with the moral-technical project of standardization of both people and things. Busch suggests guidelines for developing fair, equitable, and effective standards. Taking a uniquely integrated and comprehensive view of the subject, Busch shows how standards for people and things are inextricably linked, how standards are always layered (even if often addressed serially), and how standards are simultaneously technical, social, moral, legal, and ontological devices.

  • Appendix B. Comparison of CMMI-SW Levels 2 and 3 to IEEE Standards

    An essential guide to CMMI®-SW documentationThe CMMI®-SW, a compendium of recommended requirements for software engineering, promotes the continuous evolution of improved software and system engineering processes. Organizations seeking to satisfy documentation requirements of CMMI®-SW Levels 2 and 3 will find invaluable support in this clear and systematic text.Beginning with a comprehensive summary of CMMI®-SW, the authors present detailed guidance on the implementation of these industry standards, including how to define and train a process team, set goals, fix timelines, baseline and implement processes, and perform gap analysis and self-auditing procedures. In addition, they describe common procedural pitfalls and how to avoid them.Practical Support for CMMI®-SW Software Project Documentation offers: Detailed organizational policy examples An integrated set of over twenty deployable document templates Examples of over fifty common work products required in support of assessment activitiesA companion to Jumpstart CMM®/CMMI® Software Process Improvement, this in-depth reference will expedite the design and development of process and product documentation. Even organizations not pursuing CMMI® accreditation will learn how the application of IEEE standards can facilitate the development of sound software engineering practices.

  • About the Editor

    "In SOCIAL, ETHICAL, AND POLICY IMPLICATIONS OF ENGINEERING, engineers, faculty, and students will find an informative guide to the professional, societal, and ethical responsibilities that face practicing engineers today. Through an integrated approach to the theory of engineering ethics and practical real-world issues, this comprehensive book offers readers an in- depth analysis of technology's current social role. Drawing on readings and case studies first published in IEEE Technology and Society Magazine, this easy-to-read text will develop readers' understanding of the important issues surrounding ""macroethical"" public policy debates, including discussions of sustainable development, public health, risk and product liability, and telecommunications. These cases and readings also provide an opportunity to apply the theory in real-world situations. SOCIAL, ETHICAL, AND POLICY IMPLICATIONS OF ENGINEERING will help students meet the new accreditation criteria for engineering adopted by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). In addition, contemporary issues presented in this far- reaching book will allow students and practicing engineers to gain greater insight into how social and ethical concerns shape contributions to the engineering field.

    A brilliant instruction set for achieving CMM® and CMMI® Level 2 requirementsMany organizations, in their push to complete a successful Level 2 CMM or CMMI appraisal, make sizable investments to develop and document their software processes. This book helps these organizations save both time and money while skillfully moving from the chaos of a free-form software development process to one that is controlled, documented, and repeatable. Specifically, the author demonstrates how the application of select IEEE Software Engineering Standards ensures the production of higher quality, reproducible software products.Although the CMM and CMMI set forth standards in six Key Process Areas (KPAs) that must be satisfied to achieve Level 2 accreditation, they do not provide guidance on how to reach these standards. Readers will discover why that role should fall to the IEEE Software Engineering Standards, which, when applied effectively, can be used to develop best practices and fulfill the requirements associated with effective software project management. This book provides the link between Level 2 requirements and the supporting items available in the IEEE Software Engineering Standards. Using the detailed matrices that the author has designed to map Level 2 requirements to IEEE Software Engineering Standards, readers can better understand and meet the criteria set forth in all six KPAs.Everything needed to meet Level 2 requirements is provided: Introduction and overview Summary of SW-CMM Summary of CMMI-SW (Staged) Differences between CMM and CMMI-SW (Staged) IEEE Software Engineering StandardsTechnical terminology for each phase of a CMM and a CMMI-SW model is explained in simple language making them easy to understand. For organizations that do n ot wish to pursue Level 2 accreditation, the book is still an essential resource that provides practical guidance for developing sound software engineering practices. This book is recommended for all software engineers, project managers, and auditors.
