A New Practice Course for Freshmen Using RoboCup Based Small Robots
Contemporary engineers need to have the ability not only to freely make use of their professional knowledge and skills, but also to integrate and combine a wide range of knowledge and skills and to build a complex system to solve a problem. But the current educational programs of individual departments (mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, electronic engineering, computer science) are usually designed and performed independently. Therefore it is hard for students to understand how knowledge and technologies of each field are integrated and combined in the objects of the real world. In order to increase student understanding in this area, we propose a new practice course dealing with a completely functional object: a robot.
