Abstract

Students interaction to formalized engineering design techniques empolyed by the various engineering disciplines is discussed as an objective of the Sophomore Engineering Clinic. Introducing students to a Total Quality Management (TQM) approach to design was found to be applicable to all of the design projects completed in the Sophomore Clinic. In the specific case of the can crusher design module, the mechanical and civil engineering students had all taken Static and were concurrently enrolled in Solid Mechnics. The clinic experience was found to prove that the chemical engineering and electrical engineering students played a significant role in formulating engineering specifications, generating several concept designs, and writing the design report.
