  • Slide 1
  • Georgia Techs Aerospace Systems Design Education Program A Springboard for CDIO Implementation at Georgia Tech Dr. Daniel P. Schrage Dr. Lakshmi Sankar Dr. Dimitri Mavris Professors School of AE Georgia Tech
  • Slide 2
  • Presentation Outline What is CDIO? Aerospace Systems Design Program Product Lifecycle Engineering (PLE) and Student Lifecycle Engineering (SLE) Example Programs along the SLE Potential Alignment with CDIO
  • Slide 3
  • What is CDIO? CDIO stands for Conceive Design Implement Operate. Its an innovative educational framework for producing the next generation of engineering leaders. Industry benefits from CDIO because it produces engineers who have the knowledge, talents and experience it specifically needs.
  • Slide 4
  • Why CDIO? Educators are interested because the CDIO Syllabus forms a basis for curricular planning and outcome based assessment that is universally adaptable for all engineering schools. And, students are enthusiastic because theyre graduating with a unique array of personal, interpersonal, and system- building experiences that allows them to excel in real engineering teams, and produce new products and systems.

  • Undergraduate Program Graduate Program (MS/Ph.D.) Professional Education Technical Colleges K- MS- HS K-12 Colleges and Universities Employment Goal is on Identifying and Attracting Students through High School Summer Camps; Nurturing & Developing them through Formal UG Engineering Programs and Re-educating and Retaining them through Certificate Programs UG/Grad. Student competitions K-12 Student competitions Summer camps/workshops GT design courses Nurture and DevelopIdentify & Attract:Re-Educate & Retain Georgia Tech Aerospace Systems Design Approach for supporting the Student Lifecycle
  • Slide 9
  • Example K-12 Engineering Design Summer Camps With support of Dassault Systemes (DS) PLM Tools and Agusta- Westland Funding the following K-12 Education Initiatives have taken place over the past years: Engineering Design- CATIA Summer Camp 2007 for High School Students (~20) Engineering Design- CATIA Summer Camps 2008 for High School Students (~40) Introduction to 3-D Sketching- Cosmic Blobs Summer Camp 2008 for Middle School Students (10- 12 yrs) (~30) Introduction to 3-D Modeling- Solid Works Summer Camp 2008 for Middle School Students (12-14 yrs) (~30) GT participation with DS in K-12 Workshop at ASEE Conference, Pittsburg, PA for High School Teachers
  • Slide 10
  • Engineering Design-CATIA Summer Camp for Gifted High School Students Using CATIA V5 in IPLE Lab, July 2007
  • Slide 11
  • Engineering For the 21 st Century -CATIA High School Summer Camp June 2008
  • Slide 12
  • Challenges The summer camp lasted for two weeks Each student learned using CATIA and modeled an aircraft or some other product during the first week Course was taught by a graduate student in the IPLE Lab, with assistants
  • Slide 13
  • Team project The students were tasked to form design teams and model a complex product of their choice, provided it was an assembly of multiple components and could be made functional They were given less than one week to complete the model, create a large-size poster explaining their project, and do a 20 minute presentation on the last day to parents and faculty
  • Slide 14
  • Teams Students formed teams of their choice They helped each other to complete the challenging task of assembly modeling, having only one week of CATIA training.
  • Slide 15
  • Results from 2008 Engineering Design Summer Camps The team projects produced outstanding results. In a short time, they created functional models of a CH-47, Space Ship One, a paintball gun, and a bicycle.
  • Slide 16
  • Three Design Projects Used for Implementation with Industry Support 1.AHS International Rotorcraft Design Team Competition 2. Fixed Wing Design Derivative of the F-86 SabreJet for Boeing Certificate Program Over 80 grad & UG students and 8 professors involved in the development of the projects above. - -. 3. Undergraduate Student Design Competition
  • Slide 17
  • Design Build Fly PLM Project Developed and executed as a streamlined integration of the current AE*355 Design Competition series of classes into simplified product lifecycle management (PLM) and engineering (PLE) functions for the purpose of education and training Project provides a direct linkage to CDIO for Implementation Georgia Tech is open to joining CDIO for further implementation, including documenting, tracking, analyzing and reporting learning results Formal CDIO initially executed and documented in: * 1355 Freshman course *2355 Sophomore course 3355 Junior course*4355 Senior course Graduate students serve as mentors to UG Teams
