Engineering eduction teaches students both how the world works, and how they can change it. Beyond covering the technical tools that students will need in their careers, engineering education is about learning how to think, how to break down problems into solvable pieces, and how to make trade-offs between competing constraints. Furthermore, students should be urged to think about the ethical, social, and environmental impact of their work.
I currently run the CMU Locomotion Seminar, where we have a weekly presentation on legged locomotion, prostetics, bioinspired robotics, or similar topics. Subscribe to the CMU Locomotion Seminar group or look at the calendar.
