Experiential learning in Engineering

By Daniel Sun

The first half of MEMS 5611 (Principles and Methods of Micro and Nanofabrication) is learning about multiple lab techniques. In the second half of the semester, lectures stop and we begin our final project. We learn like researchers. We read scientific literature, planned research with our ideas, and experimented with guidance, not instructions, from the professor. Everything we did built on each other, and the course was incredibly cohesive in content and in work.

Xiaodi “Daniel” Sun is a rising senior majoring in chemical engineering and mathematics at Washington University in St. Louis. His teammates on the project were Shane Carr, a rising senior majoring in chemical engineering and computer science with a minor in nanoscale science and engineering; and Yuyang Chris Peng, who graduated May 16 with bachelor’s degrees in biomedical engineering and chemical engineering.

Kendall Gretsch, Henry Lather and Kranti Peddada, three Washington University in St. Louis seniors majoring in biomedical engineering, designed and developed a 3-D-printed prosthetic arm that costs just a fraction of the price of similar prosthetics and is noticeably lighter in weight. After months of adjustments and developing, the team met Sydney Kendall, a 13-year-old who lost part of her right hand in a boating accident, and are now finalizing the arm for Sydney to use permanently. The project was for their senior design course.

Interested in consulting? Try out Engineering Test Kitchen
by Alani Douglas
Engineering Test Kitchen is a non-profit consulting firm founded and led by Washington University undergraduate engineering students. We present an outlet for a problem many students face: the dichotomy of needing an internship to gain experience and needing experience to be selected for an internship. We connect teams of high caliber engineering undergraduates to meaningful projects provided by local companies. Through ETK, students are able to develop relationships with potential future employers and gain personal mentoring from WUSTL engineering professors. 
We are wrapping up the first iteration of projects, partnering with Prozess Technologie as well as the WUSTL Catholic Student Center. Both of the projects were focused in mechanical engineering principles, however, due to confidentiality agreements, we cannot disclose specifics of the projects.
Recently, we began talking with interested companies for the next round of projects. Students on our teams have significant input into which projects are chosen, as our aim is to provide them with skills and experience relevant to their projected careers of interest. While the projects in the first round were solely based in mechanical engineering, our vision is for Engineering Test Kitchen to span many engineering and technical disciplines.
If you are interested in joining one of our teams, please join our mailing list through the “Join Us” tab on our website, engineeringtestkitchen.org, and we will contact you when we have an availability.

Meet Engineering freshman Michael Lagieski. He’s a mechanical engineering student-athlete who set a meet and school record on his way to winning the national championship in the men’s 100 breaststroke at the 2014 NCAA Division III Swimming & Diving Championships late last month. Michael talks about balancing varsity athletics with academics.
