A Combined Outcomes Based Materials Curriculum, Lawrence Genalo Jan 1999

A Combined Outcomes Based Materials Curriculum, Lawrence Genalo

Materials Science and Engineering Conference Papers, Posters and Presentations

Beginning with the 1999 catalog, Iowa State will be moving from two degrees (Metallurgical Engineering and Ceramic Engineering) to a single degree in Materials Engineering (1). Under the new program graduates will be more well-rounded materials engineers, a desired outcome based on input from our Industrial Advisory Council and others. While building this new program from the ground up, desired outcomes (in particular, ABET 2000) were the driving force. Each course, as it was being developed, was looked at in terms of how it helped to meet these outcomes and each course has its own course-specific outcomes. We have developed ...


A Project Based Approach To Doe In Materials, Lawrence Genalo Jan 1999

A Project Based Approach To Doe In Materials, Lawrence Genalo

Materials Science and Engineering Conference Papers, Posters and Presentations

At Iowa State University, the Materials Science and Engineering Department teaches a course in the statistics of materials. Approximately one third of this two credit course is devoted to the design of experiments (DOE). A relatively brief introduction to the theory of DOE sets the stage for the inclusion of a software package used to assist materials engineers to design and analyze the results of experiments.

Texts for engineering statistics (1-3) contain chapters dealing with the design of experiments. Literature in materials journals routinely contains references to DOE (4-8). Coupling these texts and recent articles with some practical exposure to ...
