3.    IAI Major directive responses: 

a.    Review of Round 1 responses

b.    Krista will send comments via email from “no” responses, and work over summer to get those to “yes” responses.

c.    Some courses at upper level at institutions we won’t be able to fix to transfer credits as course is major not elective from “no” response schools

4.    Legislation update – SB 00059

a.    Web site complaint area is a good way to collect problem information about transfers.

b.    Can the panel get a summary of related questions/complaints?  Contact Krista

c.    Legislations could change how transfer works within Illinois.

d.    Senator Silverstein used legislation from California that had no program like IAI.  He basically replaced California with Illinois in the bill.

e.    SB 00059 basically says that if a student has his/her Associates degree, they are given some measure of security when transferring to a 4 year school, at the Jr. level.

f.     Unintended consequences:

                                          i.    Major may not be open

                                         ii.    Better to transfer before Associate level reached

5.     Other Items:

a.    IAI Policies and Procedures Manual being updated, hopefully completed in November.

b.    Krista reviewed the new facelift to the website being prepared, hopefully for deployment in the new year.

c.    Discussion re modifying the AES Degree – tabled until Spring. Krista will send document to all members, they can discuss via email.

d.    Engineering Graphics Course

                                          i.    Text of Document Provided:

EGR941: Engineering Design Graphics/CAD

(3-4 Semester Credits)

Engineering Design Graphics/CAD (3-4 semester credit hours, 4-6 contact hours) Introduction to engineering design and graphics, including design problems, sketching, 2D computer aided drafting, dimensioning, tolerancing, multi-view orthographic representations, auxiliary views, section views, and working drawings.  Students are required to use 2D CAD in this course.  Sketching and CAD techniques should be integrated in this course to achieve the following outcomes: 

·         Analyze the engineering function of existing products

·         Apply design principles and rationale in a realistic and original design project.

·         Work in a team to generate, analyze, evaluate and select among engineering design solutions to meet specified requirements

o   Create functional description of the design intent

o   Develop design objectives

o   Build functional physical model and test it

o   Communicate the results of the design process, including working drawings, verbal, and written presentations.

·         Demonstrate proficiency in freehand sketching to communicate design ideas

·         Demonstrate spatial visualization and reasoning skills either by using  descriptive geometry or 3D parametric solid modeling analysis

·         Interpret and create working drawings:

o   Convert between pictorial views and multiview drawings.

o   Create appropriate section views from given multiview drawings

o   Create a properly dimensioned and toleranced multiview drawings using engineering standards 

o   Create appropriate auxiliary views from given multiview drawings

o   Create complete working drawings with detailed part drawings and assembly drawings

                                        ii.    Hope to integrate this into existing model or add a new course.

                                       iii.    Movement towards course with more project-based components.

                                       iv.    1/3 of class – computers, etc.

                                        v.    2/3 of class – what Engineers actually do.

                                       vi.    Joe suggests taking it back to institutions to see if they would want something like this.

e.    Physics as pre-requisite or co-requisite on Statics?  Currently is co-requisite. 

6.    Next Meeting:  Thursday, April 12, 2012 at 10:00 am.  The fall meeting will be November 1, 2012.
