Three-year NSF Combined Research and Curriculum Development (CRCD) Grant Awarded to ME Faculty

Mechanical Engineering Assistant Professors Greg Walsh (PI) and Dimitrios Hristu-Varsakelis, along with Electrical and Computer Engineering Professor William Levine and Human Development Assistant Professor Roger Azevedo have been awarded a three-year National Science Foundation Combined Research and Curriculum Development (CRCD) grant for their proposal titled "A Curriculum in Networked and Distributed Systems." The project is funded at about $500K, which includes $100K in matching funds from the A. James Clark School of Engineering.

The goal of this project is to develop an innovative senior/masters-level curriculum designed to: (a) bring important new technologies in wireless and networked distributed systems into the classroom, (b) make use of novel teaching and evaluation methods to enhance faculty productivity in laboratory and project courses and (c) improve the educational value of student experiences in laboratory and project courses. The laboratory facilities which will be part of this work will also play a role in enabling multi-disciplinary research in networks, communications and control.
