First year student experience
This case study reports on enhancing the first year student experience by engaging students in the practise of business through provision of a coherent and relevant set of learning activities
Models are mechanisms for communication. This unit looks at what a model is and what the process of modelling is about. The techniques discussed here are applicable to a wide range of systems and have one thing in common: they are all commonly used diagramming techniques. The five techniques are: data flow diagrams, use case modelling, activity diagrams, entity–relationship diagrams and state machines.
The purpose of this activity is to introduce students to the concept of the engineering design process and to teach them how to apply it. In "Broken Bones," students will explore the steps of the engineering design process. They will first receive some background instruction about biomedical engineering or bioengineering. Then they will learn about material selection and material properties by using a guide created for them. Students will then break into small groups and brainstorm. Each student
You and your classmates have been sent to Germany to learn about the Berlin Wall. At the end of the trip you will return to your school and be asked questions about your experiences and what you have learned. You will read your task first, then go and read the process you will follow, next read through the learning advice, use the resources provided to answer the questions, and after you have finished all those steps go to the conclusion. Good Luck and have a FUN trip!!!

Oricalco - thermal shape memory fabric
The first orthogonal weaving example of Nitinol. The 'Thermal Shape Memory Alloy' is characterized by its extraordinary ability to recover any shape, pre-programmed, upon heating. Until today this light weight alloy with about 50% Titanium inside has been used in advanced sectors like space and recently in medical applications. Moreover this fabric is the first for which the shape memory alloy, named Nitinol, was weaved orthogonally that is to say that Oricalco is the first fabric with shape mem
