Authors Johan Bankel, is a coordinator for the Mechanical Engineering programme at Chalmers University of Technology in Göteborg, Sweden. He has a M.Sc. in Naval Architecture, a Lic. Tech. in fluid dynamics and a teacher certificate in natural science. Abstract Engineering students must graduate with command of a vast body of technical knowledge. They must(More)
Modern engineering education programs seek to impart to the students a broad base of knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to become successful young engineers. This array of abilities is represented in the CDIO Syllabus, an attempt to create a rational, complete, consistent, and generalizable set of goals for undergraduate engineering education. This(More)
 This paper details how a team at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology identified and codified a set of goals for engineering education, which can serve as the basis for curricular improvement and outcome based assessment. The result of two years of scholarship, these goals are embodied in The CDIO Syllabus, A Statement of Goals for Undergraduate(More)
This paper shows how shape grammar can be used to derive cellular au-tomata (CA) rules. Searching the potentially astronomical space of CA rules for relevance to a particular context has frustrated the wider application of CA as powerful computing systems. An approach is offered using shape grammar to visually depict the desired conditional rules of a(More)
so we are able to obtain a direct access to the field which our instructor works on; the second is that it focuses more on mathematical theory and simulation of the process of designing, something that the previous papers about the concept of database rarely mention. I learn much from reading this paper, including the algebraic theory, technique for(More)
The MIT Faculty has made this article openly available. Please share how this access benefits you. Your story matters. Although NASA has yet to choose an architecture for human spaceflight beyond Earth orbit, they must pursue near-term investment in the enabling technologies that will be required for these future systems. Given this architectural(More)
