STEM Engineering Management Workshop

 

STEM Academy students participated in an Engineering Management Workshop last week. The workshop was a combination of short lectures and discussion on engineering management with hands on exercises in which each team designed, built, tested, and competed a small semi-autonomous vehicle using a Lego Mindstorms kit.  This gave students a broader perspective of the challenging technical management issues that systems engineers and program managers encounter and solve on any successful project. The students had a budget to work within, there were very explicit with the expectations of what the robots should do, and they were given a deliverable schedule.
