Abstract or Summary
  • In 2000 the Electrical and Computer Engineering department at Oregon State University began a new and innovative program named TekBots[superscript TM]. This program was created to solve the problems of students in existing undergraduate engineering education not having sufficient skill when graduating in six program educational objectives; Depth, Breadth, Professionalism, Innovation, Community, and Troubleshooting. TekBots uses several core values such as personal ownership, curriculum continuity, contextual teaching, fun, and hands on learning, to encourage students to learn and improve. Since the inception of the program two courses have been greatly refined. An evaluation of the courses supports our indications of improvement our program educational objectives. This thesis presents the TekBots program and the details of the first two TekBots courses.
