Abstract

While the pedagogical benefits of student design teams are well established, participation is limited by available resources and the level of commitment of each student team member, since participation is predominantly extra-curricular. As a method to leverage this design experience to other students and to help promote the design teams themselves, case studies are proposed. They can be developed from student competition team design experience, and used in classes throughout the curriculum. An example case study on energy storage design is presented, based on the EcoCAR Challenge competition. This has been used in two separate first year engineering courses, in two departments, either as a term-long project or a guest lecture. Students found this an engaging introduction to engineering design, which benefited from the fact that this project was derived from their colleagues’ experience.
