IEEE 2010 Real-World Engineering Projects Call for Proposals

IEEE issued its 2010 Call for Proposals for the Real-World Engineering Projects (RWEP).  The goal of the RWEP program is to provide university educators of electrical engineering (EE), computer engineering (CE), computer science (CS), biomedical engineering (BE) and electrical engineering technology (EET) world-wide with a library of high-quality, tested, hands-on team-based society-focused projects for first-year students.

These projects are designed to increase the recruitment, persistence to degree, and satisfaction of all students, and particularly women, in baccalaureate EE, CE, CS, BE and EET degree programs.

Now in its fourth successful year, the IEEE RWEP program continues to seek high quality, hands-on, team-based projects that focus on real-world problems whose solutions benefit society.  The projects are expected to make the related IEEE fields of interest more relevant to first-year students, and to illustrate how the work of engineers and computer scientists directly impacts society.

Completed projects will be disseminated by IEEE for use by faculty in the development of first-year courses.  Projects should be stand-alone modules requiring a combined 10 to 30 hours of lecture and laboratory instruction, and should be easily replicated at institutions worldwide with reasonable cost and effort.  Authors of completed projects will receive a $10,000 award from IEEE.  Submissions are open to all faculty members who teach Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Biomedical Engineering and/or Electrical Engineering Technology at a university that grants degrees in EE, CE, CS, BE and/or EET programs. Initial abstracts are due by 31 March, 2010.  Complete details regarding the call for proposals are available online and inquiries can be made by email.

The goal of the RWEP program is to provide university educators of electrical engineering (EE), computer engineering (CE), computer science (CS), biomedical engineering (BE) and electrical engineering technology (EET) world-wide with:
  • a library of high-quality, tested, hands-on team-based society-focused projects for first-year students. These projects are designed to increase the recruitment, persistence to degree, and satisfaction of all students, and particularly women, in baccalaureate EE, CE, CS, BE and EET degree programs.
