Abstract:
This paper presents the initial results of integrating mechatronics into a large second-year design course. Issues related to course objectives, implementation, costs and initial results for the course are presented as well. The initial results generated from a group of 20 students provides some insight into the ultimate goal of implementing the enhanced curriculum for approximately 300 students per year.
