Aerospace component experiments: drag polar and Cm-alpha curve for an airfoil; fuselage and landing gear drag; compliance matrix of an isotropic and a laminated composite; mechanical and thermal properties of various aerospace materials; reporting
This course is part of the proposed Aerospace Engineering Major program.
The learning outcomes are not what we most recently discussed. Please verify the change.
I would be happy to discss the following comments.
I have the course description from a file from Michel last January as:
"Aerospace component experiments: drag polar and Cm-alpha curve for an airfoil; fuselage and landing gear drag; compliance matrix of an isotropic and a laminated composite; mechanical and thermal properties of various aerospace materials; reporting."
The writing style of the course description must be like this, above, even if the details are not what are currently planned. What happend to all of the drag stuff?
All of the learning outcomes are not covered in all of the experiments. Two learning outcomes are on drag, for example. Are they covered some other way? The course description There also is a lab on composite and metal fabrication, but no assocaited learning outcomes. There needs to be careful alignment of learning outcomes and instruction.
Uncheck "department permission" or you will have to give an override for every student to enroll.
We need to have the course titles correct and complete everywhere. For example, EMCH 371 is not "Aerospace Materials." "AESP 265 is not Aero 1" . Please check all.
Is EMCH 371 a "co-requiste" (must be taken concurrently) or a "co- or pre-requisite" (may be taken before or concurrently)? I recommend the latter. Or, is it AESP 271 instead of EMCH 371? I have seen different versions of the curriclum.
Faculty senate committee will ask to change the "1" to an "I" (letter) in the title of this course.
Replace the disabilty statement with that from the Office of Student Disability Services, "Any student with a documented disability should contact the Student Disability Resource Center at 777-6142 to make arrangements for appropriate accommodations. "
Replace the academic responsibilty statement with one recommended by the Office of Academic Integrity. They one one specific for labs. See
Add specifically a statement of course attendance policy, per ACAF 2.03
The syllabus says that attendance is required, but it is not included in the grading. An explanation of how failure to attend affects the grade is needed.
I think that the proposed effective term should be Fall 2018, not 2019.
Thank you for submitting your proposal to the Committee on Curricula & Courses. We are moving your proposal forward to the Faculty Senate. There is no need to attend the Curricula and Courses meeting, but it is recommended someone from the department attend the next Faculty Senate meeting in case there are questions from the floor regarding your proposal. The committee did have one comment regarding this proposal:
We appreciate your patience and commitment to undergraduate and graduate education.
John Gerdes, Chair
Faculty Senate Committee on Curricula and Courses
