UMass Lowell Research in Engineering Webinar 1: “Magnetic gears and magnetically-geared machines”
Mon April 15 at 5:30 pm IST (8:00 am US EDT)
Recently, magnetic gears have been introduced as strong contenders for high torque applications. They offer contact-free torque transmission and inherent overload protection capability. This talk will present an overview on magnetic gears, their integration with electric machines, as well as some potential applications. Moreover, examples of research on magnetic design aspects and control aspects of magnetic gears will be presented to familiarize the audience with the nature of research in this area.

Special IUCEE Webinar: “Outcome-based Course design using Instructional Module Development System (IMODS)”
Apr 16, 2019 10:30 AM IST
Instructional Module Development System (IMODS) is a web-based software tool that (i) guides instructors, step-by-step, through an outcome-based education process as they define learning objectives, select content to be covered, develop an instruction and assessment plan, and define the learning environment and context for their course(s); (ii) contains a repository of current best pedagogical and assessment practices, and based on selections the user makes when defining the learning objectives of the course, the system will present options for assessment and instruction that align with the type/level of student learning desired. In this webinar an overview of outcome-based course design process and the IMOD software system will be presented. Project Website: http://imod.poly.asu.edu/

ICTIEE 2019 Paper Webinar: “Enhancing the Quality of Computer Science Education with Industry Standard Coding Tools and Technique”
Apr 17, 2019 3:30 PM IST
Coding standards are one of the most important factors of good software systems. Nowadays, industries follow coding standards and use tools so that the end products can be of good quality, easy to maintain/modify/understand and are reusable. The current engineering education system, especially in the field of Computer Science does not strictly follow the coding standards; instead it prompts the learners to write the code/program using some editor and execute it without following any coding guidelines and programming styles. Due to this reason, there is a lot of gap between the codes that are written in industry and academics, especially when it comes to coding standards and usage of code refactoring tools. In this paper, we are trying to emphasize the importance of following good coding standards/guidelines so that the education system gets benefited and will result in excellent coders emerging out of engineering institutions.

ICTIEE 2019 Paper Webinar: “STEM Education as a Career for Engineering Graduates”
THU, APR 18, 2019 03:30 PM – 04:30 PM IST
There is a huge opportunity of the tune of 300K jobs in the area of STEM education. Engineering graduates are well suited for this role provided they have the interest and passion to teach children and do in depth research. The study shows that engineers can indeed be valuable in this field , and that a mentoring program for such interested students can be developed by Universities to develop and test attitudes and interests Keywords – STEM, Education, Mentors
