“We have moved very dramatically into a new era," says vice-provost, innovations in undergraduate education
As an award-winning professor of mechanical and industrial engineering, Susan McCahan can certainly tell you how machines work. But there’s one she will probably never get tired of studying: the human brain.
McCahan has never been interested in merely teaching engineering, but in finding new ways to deliver its ideas to students. In McCahan's first-year course, Engineering Strategies and Practice, students don’t just sit in seats taking notes: they go out in the field, working on design projects with real clients.
