Universities and Engineering schools need to engage students through a top-level hands-on learning experience, both in the classroom and, now more than ever, remotely. The ability to offer students labs that are accessible remotely has become a top priority in our world.
We can help you design a complete solution for you training and lab needs, where your students will be using widely adopted platforms in industry for their everyday practice.
We work with best-in-class partners to provide you with the best solutions for an optimized learning experience in every engineering field, such as robotics, communications and navigation, circuits, and electronics.
Below are just a few highlights; contact us for a full assessment of your needs and solutions available.
Controls and Mechatronics
Now more than ever, students need to be prepared for multidisciplinary problems in automotive, aerospace, and Internet of Things application. This requires a project-based approach for controls, sensors, actuators, and mechatronics systems.
We work with the best-in-class academic players to help you have a full Hands-On Approach to Teaching Controls.
- With QLabs Robotics, you can leverage a solution that is the ideal platform to teach a robotics course off-campus by providing students with their own open and customizable manipulator and mobile robot. From mobile to manipulator robotics, the QLabs Robotics virtual systems give students an opportunity to learn and experience the world of modern robotics – whether they are in lecture halls, labs, or living rooms.
- Robotic Arms: DOBOT offers a wide range of robotic arms that allow you to unleash your students’ creativity, from K12 to university teaching and research. DOBOT Magician, for example, is a multifunctional desktop robotic arm for practical training education and research. It comes with different end-tools, so that it can perform functions such as 3D printing, laser engraving, writing and drawing. It supports secondary development by 13 extensible interfaces and over 20 programming languages. DOBOT Magician is low cost, small size, and easy operation, which allows every student to practice on their own. It improves the teaching efficiency dramatically. It can be controlled by Programming, APP, Bluetooth, WiFi, Mouse, and more.
Teaching Electrical Engineering
Worldwide Universities adopt Digilent Educational Solutions
Professors at University of Massachusetts Lowell, Columbia University, Texas A&M University and other universities around the world have already successfully implemented curricula based around the Analog Discovery 2 and Analog Discovery Studio.
Due to recent school closures, University of Massachusetts Lowell has moved to an entirely online effort based on Analog Discovery 2 labs, where students work on their own. They have found that students using these labs were more engaged, had better laboratory scores, and saw an increase of 2% in final grades with no negative impact.
Read the paper “Active Learning: Improving Student Learning using Portable Computer-Based-Test-Equipment,” where Dr. Mihaela Radu and Dr. Mircea Dabacan discuss the use of the Analog Discovery from Digilent as a means of increasing experiential learning for engineering students, and proves with results that this approach works.
Teaching Measurements and Instrumentation
Acquiring and automating measurements is a key engineering skill to build an understanding of signal processing, data acquisition, and sampling theory. The right platform allows students to visualize and analyze the performance of engineering projects and systems. For that, you need to offer your students a hands-on approach to teaching measurement concepts.
