Abstract

A semester-long project conducted by Polytechnic University to teach real world concepts to freshmen is discussed. A team of students is required to build an operational model, either a robot or a computer-controlled house, over an 11-week period. The project introduces concepts widely used in industries, namely, scope of work, tasks and deliverables. The project employs a number of computer programs including Word, Excel, AutoCAD, RoboLab and LabVIEW. In addition, to simulate industrial conditions, all the projects are managed using MS Project, a scheduling program.
