Administration Of Team-Based Senior Capstone Course: Lessons Learned And Future Challenges, Gretchen A. Mosher

Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering Conference Proceedings and Presentations

Senior capstone courses provide an important mechanism for students to integrate and apply technical knowledge and skills they have acquired in previous coursework. Additionally, students are required to master a variety of professional skills, including teamwork, unstructured task completion, and project management to facilitate successful completion of a capstone course. Faculty also play an important role in the success of capstone courses. Sourcing and grading projects are common challenges for instructors. This paper will outline the challenges and best practices learned in the development and implementation of a senior-level capstone course in agricultural engineering technology, based on qualitative data gathered ...

Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering Publications

The first-ever issue of Transactions of the ASAE, published in 1907, opens with a talk given by Howard W. Riley (after whom Riley-Robb Hall at Cornell University would later be named) that's modestly titled "The Courses in Agricultural Engineering that Should be Offered." Responses from several other luminaries, including J. B. Davidson (after whom Davidson Hall at Iowa State University would later be named), are included and make for fascinating reading for any student or practitioner of our discipline.
