The Magic of Engineering: Keeping the Spark Alive

Modern marvels such as virtual reality, autonomous cars, affordable space travel, biomedical exoskeletons, robots of all sorts and yes, even jet packs are now becoming reality. All of these are inherently products of engineers and to most of the world they are magical. We could be experiencing a golden age of engineering but on campus, we seem to be struggling to integrate the magic into our programs to provide more engaging, effective, and relevant programs for the next generation of engineering leaders. This spotlight presents Quanser explorations in developing ways to introduce engineering magic into the curriculum.
