The 34th Annual Alexander Graham Christie Lecture
May 4 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
The 34th Annual Alexander Graham Christie Lecture @ 210 Hodson Hall

The Department of Mechanical Engineering hosts Maria Oden, director of the Oshman Engineering Design Kitchen at Rice University, for the 34th Annual Alexander Graham Christie Lecture. Oden will present a lecture titled “Oshman Engineering Design Kitchen at Rice University: Lessons learned in the early years.”

Abstract

Maria Oden will present the short seven-year history of the Oshman Engineering Design Kitchen, at Rice University, where students are exposed to unique hands-on design experiences and opportunities to test and carry ideas to their intended point of application. An overview of the facility itself and how it fosters design, prototyping, and technology evaluation will be provided. This presentation will also provide a review of the goals and longer term impact of the program.

The OEDK has truly shifted the culture of engineering design at Rice, bringing together students with various perspectives to collaborate on multidisciplinary teams. Undergraduates using the OEDK represent the eight different engineering disciplines, as well as architecture, natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities. Since its inception in 2009, use of OEDK has increased from about 250 to over 1200 undergraduate students annually. Examples of real-world design challenges and their solutions, from the energy industry to medical technologies, will be presented. Specific examples and demonstrations from projects in the past several years will be used to illustrate major points in the presentation. Data demonstrating the growth and impact of this new education paradigm will also be shared.

Johns Hopkins Engineering Design Day 2017
May 9 all-day
Johns Hopkins Engineering Design Day 2017

WSE Design Day is the culmination of the Johns Hopkins translational education experience and provides students with the opportunity to display their research, engineering solutions, and prototypes. Celebrate the innovation of Johns Hopkins Engineering as our students demonstrate their ability to apply knowledge and skills to tackle real-world challenges. Alumni and guests are welcome at all department events.

A free shuttle bus will run from the Homewood Campus to the School of Medicine throughout the day.

Pick-up and drop-off points for the shuttle are the Mason Hall circle on the Homewood campus and McElderry Circle (in front of the Armstrong building) on the Medical campus.
 
The first shuttle leaves the Homewood campus at 10:30 a.m. The last shuttle leaves the School of Medicine campus at 7:30 p.m.
