courses taught

  • GEEN 1400 - Engineering Projects
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2023
    First-year students solve real engineering design problems in interdisciplinary teams. Design projects vary by section. Curriculum focuses on iterative design process, teamwork and team dynamics, supporting design with testing and analysis, and technical writing. Completed projects are exhibited at an end-of-semester design expo. Students responsible for contributing towards their design project budget and poster costs, and purchasing safety glasses (approximately $75).
  • GEEN 2010 - Engineering Tools and Analysis
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2022
    Taught by engineering faculty, this course utilizes active learning pedagogies to connect math content to engineering problems (across multiple disciplines) by using real engineering tools. Students are introduced to circuits, multimeters, oscilloscopes, sensors and more. They learn to program in MATLAB (no previous programming experience necessary). Students work collaboratively with other students to collect and analyze experimental data. There is one lecture, one mixed lecture/hands-on problem session, and one lab period each week.
  • MCEN 3012 - Thermodynamics
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2022
    Explores fundamental concepts and basic theory, including first and second laws of thermodynamics, properties, states, thermodynamic functions and cycles. Same as GEEN 3852.
