The aim of this paper is to present a conceptual framework for training undergraduate students in development methodologies where careful attention is paid to understanding the needs of stakeholders.
A New Undergraduate Course In Electromechanical Systems For Industrial Engineering Technology
There is an increasing need in engineering and technology educational practices to include interdisciplinary components. This paper describes key curriculum activities in a new electromechanical
Using Software Engineering Principles to Develop a Web-Based Application
The results from the study suggest that introducing a hybrid approach inclusive of traditional software processes and web engineering techniques can be done successfully at the undergraduate level but not without certain challenges.
A practical application of software security in an undergraduate software engineering course
The paper presents a modified software engineering course which introduces the secure development life cycle and introduces collaborative learning and service-learning which are used in the practical application of software security concepts.
Case study: Redesigning a Kansei Engineering Designed Scissors by User Centered Design Approach
This paper is based on the research which was conducted earlier on Kansei Engineering (KE) and resulted in a new concept for scissors to redesign it with another method called “User Centered Design”
Adaptive Kinetic Architecture: A Portal To Digital Prototyping
An overview of digital prototyping commercial software for engineering applications that can be transferred to architecture, and some of the unresolved issues are identified, which extends the vision of the comprehensive building information modeling initiative.
Growing a Peer Review Culture among Graduate Students
This paper instructs first-year masters and doctoral students on principles for preparing a thesis proposal and instructs them on the role they will play next – of anonymous referees of their peers’ proposals.
Shifting the Paradigm: Training Undergraduate Students in Software Security

  • 2010
The aim of this paper is to present a paradigm for introducing software security to undergraduates in a traditionally taught software engineering course and presents challenges and future work.
Model-Based Design and Verification of Embedded Software
A number of models that have been developed in the context of the COMDES framework are presented, used to derive design patterns for reusable and reconfigurable components, such as the state Logic controller and the hybrid state logic controller, whose principles of operation are presented in the paper.

The Reflective Practitioner
The reflection that accompanies the evidence a candidate presents in the performance-based product is a critical part of the candidate's development. Through reflection the candidate begins the
Graduate Education in Computational Science and Engineering
Numerical simulation enables the study of complex systems and natural phenomena that would be too expensive or dangerous, or even impossible, to study by direct experimentation, and has provided the impetus for dramatic breakthroughs in computer algorithms and architectures.
Replacing usability testing with user dialogue
This article outlines four examples to show how the conventional usability-testing format is turned into a dialogue between users and designers, and how this has changed the conception of objectivity of usability testing.
Ethnographic Fieldwork Under Industrial Constraints: Toward Design-in-Context
In this article, design-in-context is introduced through 2 cases of user involvement, and the original meaning of fieldwork in ethnography is considered, and how ethnographically inspired fieldwork can enrich research and data gathering in a participatory design setting is discussed.

Using a Microprocessor in an Intelligent Graphics Terminal
With the availability of microprocessors, it is now possible to resolve this delemma: a reasonable amount of intelligence can be added to the terminal at a very reasonable cost.
On consistent regularities of control and value functions
In this paper we deal with nonsmooth optimal control problems in the case when the control is allowed to be a discontinuous function. We analyse smoothness assumptions on an adjoint process in
