Description

Iron Range Engineering is a project-based, non-traditional engineering program where the IRE students gained their technical learning in the context of multidisciplinary industry-based projects. A team of students from Iron Rang Engineering completed a multidisciplinary project for Essar Steel Minnesota in spring 2012. The project included the basic design of a power substation for the main pelletizing plant. The students did not have any prior experience in designing power substations. The technical and professional skills required to complete the project were gained in the course of the semester. In this paper, we describe the program and use this project as an example of learning in the context of industry-sponsored projects.
