Gateway Engineering Education Coalition
MANUFACTURING/CONCURRENT ENGINEERING

The aim of this area is to establish concurrent design courses/environment that can be exported throughout and beyond the coalition. As part of the project, a number of multimedia tutorials and modules for a concurrent design course have been developed. Also, an infrastructure based on teleconferencing has been established through which teams of students at the four universities can design, analyze, simulate, and manufacture complex products. This environment also facilitates sharing of hardware and software through remote access.
