Robotics as a Vehicle for Engineering Education

  title={Robotics as a Vehicle for Engineering Education},
  author={Gregory E. Needel},
An important factor in an engineering education is the students' ability to apply their theoretical knowledge to solving real world problems. Unfortunately, many schools are unable to provide full laboratories for experimental experiences due to a variety of constraints. This is a serious problem for educators who wish to provide practical learning for their students. One of the more commonly employed methods of providing a “hands-on” approach to learning is through the use of educational kits…

Master Program Students Experiences in Robot Operating System Course
The paper presents result of surveys that were conducted among first year students of Robot Operating System (ROS) course, which serves as a basic backbone of the program and analyzed dynamics of English language comprehension, self-efficiency, and active learning strategies among students within a semester.


A Multidisciplinary Model for Using Robotics in Engineering Education
A model for multidisciplinary cooperation that alleviates the lack of familiarity that students in each discipline have for the other fields of study and elevates robotics to a potentially pivotal position in engineering education is presented.
