Rubin is proud to release an academic paper with the mechanical engineering department at Michigan State called “Creating a Communications Curriculum for the Modern Engineer.”
Rubin and Michigan State began a pilot program in fall 2019 to incorporate communication skill lessons (ex: email etiquette) into engineering classes like design courses, labs and a senior capstone.
The innovative collaboration continued into the 2020-2021 academic year, and now the partnership is on full display as an academic paper published by the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE).
From the paper’s abstract:
The paper outlines the development of a multi-course syllabus and leveraging an existing communications education solution. Careful work is done to integrate communication education into the course objectives and curriculum rather than treating it as an add-on. Evidence of successfully achieving student outcomes is measured with student surveys and questionnaires.
