A nontraditional course in electromechanical systems for engineering technologists Academic Article uri icon


  • Texas A&M University teaches a required course in electromechanical systems to sophomore and junior mechanical and electrical engineering technology majors. Faculty teaching this class face many challenges due to the technically diverse student audience, unusual prerequisite knowledge set and the need to integrate underlying mathematical foundations into course materials. This article discusses several innovative laboratory and instructional approaches used to introduce topical materials to such a mixed student audience.
