The Learning Factory integrates a practice-based curriculum and advanced manufacturing facilities. Its goal is to provide a new engineering educational experience that emphasizes the interdependency of design and manufacturing in a business environment. The Learning Factory offers a new approach to engineering education by providing balance between(More)
Capstone design courses in engineering that provide students the opportunity to tackle open-ended real-world projects provide excellent learning experiences for the students. Reported here are experiments with several models that have students work in teams on industry sponsored projects requiring a tested prototype as the final deliverable. The first(More)
The nodulin N23 gene promoter was analysed in transgenic plants using the chloramphenicol acetyltransferase (CAT) coding sequence as a reporter. A 5' flanking region of less than 1 kb was sufficient for the organ-specific expression of a chimeric N23-CAT-3'lbc3 gene in root nodules formed on Lotus corniculatus and Trifolium repens after infection by their(More)
 The Learning Factory is an industry-university partnership to produce world-class engineers by integrating design, manufacturing and business realities into the engineering curriculum. It integrates a practice-based curriculum and physical facilities for product realization. It began in January 1995 with ARPA/NSF funding as a National Labs. After 6 years,(More)
Product dissection and benchmarking are processes commonly employed in industry to improve product design, produce superior performance and product quality. The process, when applied in an undergraduate academic setting, can improve the process of teaching design. It has been applied to teach undergraduate mechanical engineering students at the Junior(More)
The Learning Factory is a facility that supports product realization within a new practice based, engineering curriculum. The curriculum has been developed and adopted by the participating universities of the Manufacturing Engineering Education Partnership (MEEP). This partnership is a unique collaboration of three major universities with strong engineering(More)
The objective of this study was to translate the Foot Function Index (FFI) for use in Danish-speaking patients with foot complaints. The FFI consists of 23 items scored on a numeric rating scale from 0 to 10. The 23 items are grouped into three subscales: pain (nine items), activity limitation (five items), and disability (nine items). The Danish FFI was(More)
