To truly learn engineering fundamentals, students need to experience them by doing theory, design, and experimentation all at the same time.
The University of Virginia redesigned its fundamentals curriculum to implement a more hands-on, project-based approach to education that has resulted in negative attrition, vastly improved concept comprehension, and an increase in departmental national ranking by 16 positions.
Watch and learn:
How UVA implemented a curriculum redesign to increase concept inventory pass rate by 15%
What type of student engagement is needed to reverse attrition in the ECE department
How improved electronics fundamentals courses have positively impacted the complexity and sophistication in capstone design projects
