The Weather And Air Traffic Management Integration Course In The Graduate Aeronautics Program At Embry-Riddle, John Lanicci Jun 2015

The Weather And Air Traffic Management Integration Course In The Graduate Aeronautics Program At Embry-Riddle, John Lanicci

John M Lanicci

One year ago, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University added a new Area of Concentration (AOC) in Aviation Meteorology to the Master of Science in Aeronautics (MSA) program at the Daytona Beach, Florida campus. As part of the preparation for the start of this program, an experimental graduate seminar in Weather and Air Traffic Integration was taught over the summer, which attracted graduate students with backgrounds in commercial and private aviation, applied meteorology, and engineering physics. The purpose of this course was to introduce the students to the concept of weather and air traffic integration as it currently exists and is being planned ...


Risk Analysis & Management In Student-Centered Spacecraft Development Projects, Jeremy Straub, Ronald Fevig, James Casler, Om Yadav Jan 2013

Risk Analysis & Management In Student-Centered Spacecraft Development Projects, Jeremy Straub, Ronald Fevig, James Casler, Om Yadav

Jeremy Straub

Student involvement in any engineering project introduces an element of risk. This risk is particularly pronounced with small spacecraft projects, as a failure of the spacecraft on-orbit can result in a complete failure of the mission. However, student involvement in these projects is critical to allow research aims to be accomplished, in a university setting, and to train the next generation of spacecraft engineering professionals. The nature of risks posed by student involvement is discussed and a framework for assessing and mitigating these risks presented.

Medical Technology: Contexts And Content In Science And Technology, Michael Demiranda, Mark Doggett, Jane Evans

Mark Doggett

Medical Technology: Contexts and Content in Science and Technology is one of a series of documents envisioned to assist educators in improving and strengthening students’ knowledge in a specific area of science and technology. Its purpose is to build a basic understanding of medical technology using historical perspective, conceptual framework, and educational vignettes. It was designed for use by educators who have an interest in introducing medical technology as part of a science, technology, mathematics, or applied engineering curriculum. The Standards for Technological Literacy (STL) published by the International Technology Education Association (ITEA) described twenty content standards in technology for ...
