Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering Conference Proceedings and Presentations

The events of 9/11 intensified concerns about the safety of food. Legislation requirements for food traceability present challenges for US grain handlers in meeting new regulations of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) (Iowa Grain Quality Initiative, 2006). With the goal of protecting the US food supply, the Public Health Security and Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Act of 2002 (known as ‘the Act’).

Integrating Communication And Engineering Skills In An Industrial Engineering Curriculum Based On Outcome Assessment Results, Leslie A. Potter, John K. Jackman, K. Jo Min, Matt Search

Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering Conference Proceedings and Posters

To bridge the gap between technical and communication skills of industrial engineering students at Iowa State University, faculty have focused assessment-driven continuous improvement in the curriculum on the integration of communication and engineering skills. Written, verbal, and non-verbal communication skills are addressed through the core communication process (Analysis, Formulation, Creation, Delivery, and Assessment): the focus of a new engineering communications course. This paper describes the creation of this course, including the impetus for inception, course content, structure, and outcome-based learning activities. Student growth and survey results are examined. Long term impact expectations and assessment plans are described.
