Of these, 29 were ECSEL classes, and 20 were non-ECSEL classes.
Because two ECSEL institutions are Historically Black Universities, the diversity index was calculated so that classrooms with a diversity "mix" approaching 50% were considered the most diverse.
Although local evaluators were urged to sample ECSEL and non-ECSEL courses from across their institution's college of engineering's class levels, the resulting samples may not be representative of the course or student populations (engineering or otherwise) on each campus.
During Spring 1996, CSHE's formative evaluation of ECSEL included an assessment of the effects of group design projects on student learning.
The junior and senior students we interviewed at the seven ECSEL schools reflected the variety of students enrolled in four-year colleges and universities.
Not surprisingly, given the early ECSEL focus on implementing first-year design courses, students' previous experiences with group projects often occurred in introductory engineering courses.
Recognising the effort of the EC, EDA, and ECSEL
communities as well as the need to further raise awareness on the subject, Willy Van Puymbroeck, EC, concluded that: We need to seed in order to harvest but we have to dare to harvest the work that is being done.
EnSO relates to several of the Strategic Thrusts of ECSEL
It pools investments from industry, individual countries and ECSEL
(Electronic Components and Systems for European Leadership) Joint Undertaking.
Therefore, we are the only region in Europe funding projects within the research program ECSEL, together with the member state.
This is reflected in the framework resolved by the Federal Cabinet this year, as well as by the participation of Germany in the European ECSEL initiative.
Bert De Colvenaer, Executive Director of ECSEL Joint Undertaking, summarized the project from a European perspective: ECSEL JU is the leading instrument for securing important key technologies in Europe.
