ME455-DESCI502: Analytical Product Design
Alex Burnap integrated his student and GSI experiences to enhance the design science course, DESCI502/ ME455. He worked with his professor to integrate active learning techniques into the lecture class, supported the teams by customizing explanations to fit the individual needs of students, and encouraged students’ entrepreneurial spirit through pursuing start-ups. He created a website for the course (and integrated it with Ctools) allowing student teams to manage their market surveys and view class sessions.
