Abstract

A new platform for learning has been developed for mechanical engineering programs at Oregon State University with great success. This new platform provides hands-on experience, encourages innovation, and presents the means for a more holistic education of mechanical engineering graduates. By combining experiences in electronics, programming and a heavy dose of mechanical theory and practice students can use the platform to build exciting projects and test benches.
