Abstract or Summary
  • Future engineers need to be competitive in today's expanding global industries. They must have capabilities beyond standard engineering practice. In an attempt to develop students capable of working in a globally distributed design and manufacturing environment, Oregon State University (OSU) and Duale Hochschule Baden-Württemberg Ravensburg (DHBW) have developed a senior capstone design project in which students design, build, test and race two identical Formula SAE race cars as a fully collaborative effort. The main intention of this project was to develop an innovative educational experience for students entering into today's globalized engineering society. In order to accomplish that goal, the project's team management structure had to be developed to allow the project to be sustainable year-to-year and yet highly functional. Data exchange and communication tools were developed to allow students to accomplish their everyday tasks as a member of a distributed design team. Finally global supply chain issues were addressed through the creation and implementation of a custom part information tool allowing parts to be distributed to the two schools. After three years of developing collaboration tools and procedures, students were able to learn and apply practical skills beyond the classroom in an international engineering setting. Ultimately, students participating in this project would become highly desirable engineering graduates through their experience working as a member of an internationally distributed design and manufacturing team. This paper discusses the steps taken to develop the management, data and communication tools necessary for OSU and DHBW to work collaboratively on a Formula SAE racing vehicle. This paper was also intended as an outline for other schools; it conveys the lessons learned and the requirements necessary for universities to collaborate on student engineering projects.
