Changing from hands-on learning to virtual simulations

This week is a pivotal one for the University of Michigan (U-M) Mechanical Engineering (ME)  undergraduate students. In a normal semester, it is time to put the finishing touches and conduct tests on their semester-long team projects in ME 250 and ME 350. It all culminates during the U-M ME Undergraduate Symposium (MEUS) where they meet in the BorgWarner Galleria of GG Brown for a showdown of machines and what always proves to be a solid demonstration of problem-solving.
