Hands-on Skill Retention
Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Associate Professor Gregory Kowalski & Assistant Academic Specialist Bridget Smyser received the DELOS Best Paper Award for “Examining skill retention from a redesigned laboratory course to capstone design sequence”.
The Division of Experimental and Laboratory-Oriented Studies is concerned with the laboratory component of engineering curricula. Thus, it consists of people who strongly believe in the importance of laboratories at all levels of instruction. The main activity of the division is the program which it develops for the Annual Conference. Sessions are devoted to innovations in laboratory instruction and each year one of the engineering divisions is highlighted in a separate session.
