Abstract

It is common to carry out engineering changes during the design of new engineering products and systems. However, the impact of engineering change in design projects conducted in a tertiary education setting is not well understood.Such design projects are typically subjected to artificial design cycles as constrained by the academic calendar. The output of these design projects are also usually evaluated based on standardised assessment rubrics that may not consider the possibility of late engineering changes. As a result, students that arerequired to carry out extensive engineering changes during their design projects may be graded less favourably if their contribution prior to the changes are not systematically recognised.Their motivated level may be affected as well. In an attempt to improve the way design projects are carried out and assessed at tertiary education institutes, this paper discusses a pilot study that was put together to better understand the impact of engineering change in design education.

ds endorsed conferenceInternational Conference on Advanced Design Research and Education 2014 (ICADRE14)

International Conference on Advanced Design Research and Education 2014 (ICADRE14)he International Conference on Advanced Design Research and Education (ICADRE) aims to promote the understanding, use, and education of engineering design in Singapore and the Asia Pacific region. The objectives of this conference are to advance research in design, to share practices of design education, and to discuss how the output of design research can be adopted into design education. We invite high-quality submissions covering original and previously unpublished work for this conference....
