Skule Lunch & Learn: What Can Mechanical Engineering Designers Learn from Software Developers? @ Virtual
Feb 14 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

 

U of T Engineering Lunch & Learn

U of T Engineering alumni, join us for this monthly series. Learn about exciting research in diverse subjects from U of T Engineering professors.

Join us for an exclusive Skule Lunch & Learn featuring Professor Alison Olechowski (MIE).

Computer-aided design (CAD) is used to conceptualize every manufactured object in our lives, from medical devices to cars to toys to furniture, and promises faster and higher-quality design. As CAD platforms align with software development tools that foster collaboration, a pivotal question emerges:

Can the highly collaborative design processes of software development be applied to product design?

Professor Alison Olechowski’s research applies software development principles, like pair programming and version control, to hardware design using CAD. Through laboratory experiments and analysis of innovation competition data, her work reveals important implications for how in-program collaborative tools can positively impact design, management, and innovation in mechanical engineering product design.

Register today to learn how teamwork may unlock unprecedented potential for engineering design.
