    Materials Science Lab Manual MENG 3114 by Dr. Salim Azzouz, Dr. Jan Brink and Mr. Mark Weller, June 20, 2011, McCoy School of Engineering, Midwestern State University, XanEdu Publishing, Inc., Ann Arbor, Michigan.

     

    The Article “Material determination using spark observation” by Tyler Dalke, Jan Brink & Mark Weller was published in the Global Journal of Engineering Education WIETE 2013, Volume 15, Number 3, 2013.

     

     We are currently (summer 2014) submitting this article to for the Journal of Higher Education Policy

    and Management  and we are hoping to get this manuscript approved for publication. The title will be

    “Work Sampling of University Academics in STEM Departments With and Without a Graduate

    Programme”, by Dr. M. Shipley, Dr. J. Masuoka, Dr. D.McDonald, Dr. J. Brink

    The “Electric Circuits Lab Book” got published for the Electric Circuits class by XanEdu . It got used in the Summer I session of 2014. It was published together with Dania Wilson, Chard Davis, Tarebi John and Ryian Williams

     

    I worked together with five students and Dr. Guo on a Robotics Peck Drilling application (Fall 2013 and Spring 2014). Students of this group presented at the NTASC conference at MSU, one student presented at the TAS conference in Galveston, and they all presented a poster at the second Undergraduate Research and Activity Forum.

     

    I made improvements in the Fluid Power Lab Manual and added several new labs (Summer 2014).

    I updated a PLC manual for the next upcoming Fall semester (Fall 2014).

     

    I worked on an UGROW project summer 2014 together with the student Daniel Goodey and Mr. Mark Weller on

     the project “Steel identification  using the spark impacts on a ceramic substrate using a thermal imaging camera

    and other identification methods"..
