CETA Faculty Present Papers at Engineering Education Conference

Faculty from the College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture (CETA) had several papers published and presented this summer at the annual conference and exposition of the American Society of Engineering Educators (ASEE) held June 10-13.
Founded in 1893, the ASEE is committed to furthering education in engineering and engineering technology.  The event hosted over 400 technical sessions, with peer-reviewed papers spanning all disciplines of engineering and engineering technology education.  ASEE's 12,000+ members include deans, department heads, faculty members, students, as well as government and industry representatives.
– Dr. Keshawarz and Dr. Alnajjar of CETA, and Prof. Azimi of Herat University in Afghanistan, coauthored "Accomplishments and Lessons Learned," which outlines the partnership between CETA and the engineering faculty at Herat University. The goal of the collaboration, which started in 2007, is to establish Herat University as having the preeminent engineering program for Western Afghanistan.
Dr. Swartz of CETA presented his paper, "Building a Classroom Culture that Paves the Way to Learning," which summarizes lessons learned from the author's first five years in teaching, and the logical progression towards a flipped classroom.
Dr. Shetty and Mr. Campana of CETA coauthored "Precision Measurement Method of Misalignment, Cracks, Contours, and Gaps in Aerospace Industry," which was presented by Dr. Hill of CETA.  The paper describes a new laser-based inspection apparatus based on a non-contact method useful in hard to reach cases.
Dr. Hill and Dr. Shetty coauthored, "Low-Cost Educational Laser-Based Vibration Measurement System with Improved Signal Conditioning, Python and MATLAB," which was presented by Dr. Hill.  The paper describes an enhanced laser based vibration measurement system which is multidisciplinary and has educational value.
Dr. Hill and Dr. Yu of CETA coauthored and presented "The CPLD Provides a Third Option in the Introductory Logic Circuits Course."  The paper describes CETA's successful introduction of programmable logic devices to its introductory logic circuits course, in a way which retains the hands-on experience, enhancing learning.
Dr. Moslehpour of CETA was a coauthor of "Introducing a Remotely Accessible Optical Laboratory for Undergraduate Students," along with Dr. Farahmand, Mrs. Kuppuru, and Mrs. Matsa of Sonoma State University.  The paper reports on development of a remote laboratory platform that allows students to complete different lab experiments involving fiber optics and optical communications.
In addition to the papers, Dr. Hill and Dr. Yu each co-moderated a technical session of the Computers in Education division.
