by Patrick A. Fitzhorn, Colorado State Univ, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: University Programs in Computer-Aided Engineering, Design, and Manufacturing

Abstract: It is apparent from the literature, as well as discussions with faculty at other colleges of engineering, that the topics of freshman engineering design and computation are being dealt with in a superficial manner. We argue that such courses are technologically and academically inappropriate, and only obfuscate and perpetuate the real pedagogical issues.
