" This is an advanced course on modeling, design, integration and best practices for use of machine elements such as bearings, springs, gears, cams and mechanisms. Modeling and analysis of these elements is based upon extensive application of physics, mathematics and core mechanical engineering principles (solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, manufacturing, estimation, computer simulation, etc.). These principles are reinforced via (1) hands-on laboratory experiences wherein students conduct experiments and disassemble machines and (2) a substantial design project wherein students model, design, fabricate and characterize a mechanical system that is relevant to a real world application. Students master the materials via problems sets that are directly related to, and coordinated with, the deliverables of their project. Student assessment is based upon mastery of the course materials and the student's ability to synthesize, model and fabricate a mechanical device subject to engineering constraints (e.g. cost and time/schedule)."

Students will explore vacation destinations around the world to develop an understanding of global trade, comparative advantage, exchange rates, and the value of the dollar in other countries. Each team will conduct thorough research of multiple vacation destinations and then select one that team members believe would be an unusual, educational, and highly economical destination for student groups. The team will then develop a website, digital poster, or other deliverable that creatively explains its recommended vacation destination, the exchange rate, two examples of comparative advantage that the destination country enjoys, and expenses incurred during the week-long vacation.  The attached project document (found in the Resource Library) includes step-by-step instructions, templates, briefings, resources, and rubrics to help in executing this project. A PowerPoint to help introduce the project is also available in the Resource Library.  Driving Question: What would be the most economical, unique, and educational travel destination for students? Timeframe: 2 weeks

This course discusses the basics every manager needs to organize successful technology-driven innovation in both entrepreneurial and established firms. We start by examining innovation-based strategies as a source of competitive advantage and then examine how to build organizations that excel at identifying, building and commercializing technological innovations. Major topics include how the innovation process works; creating an organizational environment that rewards innovation and entrepreneurship; designing appropriate innovation processes (e.g. stage-gate, portfolio management); organizing to take advantage of internal and external sources of innovation; and structuring entrepreneurial and established organizations for effective innovation. The course examines how entrepreneurs can shape their firms so that they continuously build and commercialize valuable innovations. Many of the examples also focus on how established firms can become more entrepreneurial in their approach to innovation.

As its name implies, the 3.042 Materials Project Laboratory involves working with such operations as investment casting of metals, injection molding of polymers, and sintering of ceramics. After all the abstraction and theory in the lecture part of the DMSE curriculum, many students have found this hands-on experience with materials to be very fun stuff - several have said that 3.042/3.082 was their favorite DMSE subject. The lab is more than operating processing equipment, however. It is intended also to emulate professional practice in materials engineering project management, with aspects of design, analysis, teamwork, literature and patent searching, web creation and oral presentation, and more.

The Project Management Toolkit for Teachers® provides a modular, user-friendly resource that teachers can use to help prepare students to be college and career ready. The materials use a project learning approach to teach students the universal life, learning, and professional skills of project management. PMIef requires you to submit your email to receive the toolkit; I have not been solicited with other emails. PMIef does also offer additional resources.

This guide served as an excellent resource for my Principles of Management class as students learned the concepts and skills of project management. It provided useful activities to incorporate into the current curriculum as well as an extra resource for students when they were absent.

In a world that is becoming more virtual, more global, and more complex, the project manager's ability to function in this environment becomes critical to the success of the project. Project Management from Simple to Complex explores project management within this complex, virtual, and global environment.

This is not a standard textbook that was adapted to the new publishing paradigm but was designed from the beginning to utilize its capabilities. The book is written in collaboration by an expert in Project Management—Russell Darnall—and an expert in writing instructional texts and using technology for communicating online—John Preston—to create a unique learning environment that prepares students to manage projects in a global, multicultural, and online environment.

Project Management from Simple to Complex features a new model for managing projects, as well as, exploration into the personal dynamics of project management and the role those dynamics play in project outcomes.

Everything starts with a project - a short-term undertaking that creates a unique good or service. Projects help businesses maintain flexibility so that they can take advantage of new opportunities quickly and effectively. Teach your students more about projects, why they’re important, and how businesses manage them effectively. LAP modules are comprehensive instructional packages that include all elements of a performance-oriented lesson plan. This LAP includes a student narrative that includes information about project management, a (So What?) discussion of why it's important to learn, and a short (Gray Zone) case addressing ethical issues. The instructor section features a comprehensive discussion guide, complete learning guide (short answer) and post-tests (multiple-choice) with descriptive keys, student activities, and more.

Completing the SBE certification process is a time consuming and rewarding project. Your school-based enterprise will be better because of the work that you do. It is highly recommended that you use project management tools to organize, plan, and execute the completion of the SBE certification documentation. The project management tools you will need are included in this packet. “If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail” (Benjamin Franklin). Before you create your project management plan, you first need to understand what work needs to be accomplished. Each of the modules is set up the same. Completing the tasks in order will help you learn and understand what you need to know and keep you on track for completing the tasks. A downloadable version of this lesson can be found in the Resource Library. More school-based enterprise modules can be found here: https://mbastatesconnection.mbaresearch.org/
