Summer Activities Introduce to Technology & Engineering-2014

The Summer Activities Introduce to Technology & Engineering-2014 is a multi-faceted program that allows students to explore how engineers envision creative, practical solutions that benefit the everyday lives of people and the communities in which they live. Students will be exposed to selected topics in electrical, civil, computer systems, environmental, industrial, and mechanical engineering. These areas will be examined through faculty-led presentations, hands-on, guided discovery, and a design project.  Presentations will be made by practicing professionals and SRGC faculty members.  Students will attend field trips geared toward technical learning, team building, and enrichment activities; they will also tour active engineering labs on campus in order to experience current research projects in a variety of engineering fields.  Finally, students will participate in group activities, research projects, and presentations. These students also participate in workshops on entrepreneurship, cultural engagement, preparing for college alongside activities outside of the classroom, including guided tours of the college facilities and outdoor recreation activities, which offers a modern computer station for each student and state-of-the-art instructional technology. The program takes place in 21 June to 20 July 2014 and all B.Tech (EE), 2nd & 3rd Year student participants.
Students are expected to develop skills in:

  • Engineering Design
  • Communication
  • Leadership
  • Teamwork
  • Research
  • Computer software (including MATLAB, PSPICE, AutoCAD and ArcGIS)

GUEST LECTURES

At some point in your career you will likely be asked to be a guest lecturer for someone else’s class. Whether you are one of several presenters in a “parade of stars” or you are “parachuted in” as a subject expert for several lectures, this distinctive opportunity provides a chance to make a difference in the lives of students. Providing a context for your guest lecture increases the odds that students will engage in, and retain, their learning. In order to do this, obtain the course syllabus and consider observing the class before your scheduled debut. Ensure that your presentation fits with what has come before and what will come after.

A guest lecturer is often asked to expound on a topic in one or two lectures that could easily span this short term course. To prevent information overload, limit the content and emphasize the key points, which will increase the likelihood that students will remember the most important concepts. Cook counsels, “Do less, but more in‐depth.” Careful preparation is essential. Effective organization enhances retention. If you categorize information in logical groups of no more than six, you can help students retain information in a useful form.
Guest Lecture will given by:

  • SRGC faculty discussing their professional studies and research
  • Practicing engineers from industry
  • SRGC science faculty
