Ivana Milanovic, professor of mechanical engineering, and Tom Eppes, professor of electrical & computer engineering were invited to conduct a one-day workshop at the University of the District of Columbia (UDC) on November 30th. The first part of the workshop featured two talks on how simulations can be successfully integrated into engineering graduate and undergraduate courses. This pedagogical approach combines problem- and inquiry-based learning and employs both model building and application development. The learning strategy emphasizes outside-of-class exercises supported by reference materials and faculty mentoring. The second part of the workshop was a hands-on activity focused on how to construct a working model of either fluid flow over a back-step or an electroosmotic micromixer. The event was attended by approximately 30 faculty and students from the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at UDC.
