  6. + INDIVIDUALS INSTITUTIONS JUST-IN-TIME PERFORMANCE SUPPORT MARKETS OPPORTUNITIES MILITARY INDUSTRY DIAGNOSTICS EXPERIMENTATION NEW COMMUNICATION APPLICATION SERVERS MULTI/RE-USE PERFORMANCE TECHNOLOGIES MANAGEMENT INFORMATION ECONOMICS CULTURE DIGITAL LIBRARIES SYNTHETIC ENVIRONMENTS

  7. + WHAT’S HAPPENING NOW? • New Courses • New Degrees • For Profit Universities • Virtual Classrooms • Military Requirements • Alliances and Consortia (Co-opetition)

  8. Training and education is a trillion dollar market worldwide Larry Ellison, Chairman 1998

  9. DRIVERS GLOBALIZATION DEMOGRAPHICS ECONOMICS LEARNING TECHNOLOGIES NEW FIELDS

  10. CURRENT TRENDS • Increasing population of non-traditional students • Students have different objectives • degree • certificate • professional development • Students have wide variety of backgrounds • note that we offer courses in over 60 locations • Students have different “needs” to know • one topic may be more important now than another • Students may need to know “parts” from different courses to support them professionally • Students may have different learning styles and abilities • some can learn specific material faster than others

  11. In short, there is a shift from seeking degrees to seeking “Learning” “Learning” encompasses: • Training • Education • Performance Mentoring

  13. DISTANCE LEARNING A Major ODU Asset

  14. WHAT CAN THE TECHNOLOGY DO? • Leads to Using Technology to do what is being done today • faster • cheaper • neater • Maintains current paradigm • Enhances efficiency

  15. WHAT CAN THE TECHNOLOGY DO? • Leads to Using Technology to do what is being done today • faster • cheaper • neater • Maintains current paradigm • Enhances efficiency DELIVER INSTRUCTION

  16. WHAT CAN I DO WITH THE TECHNOLOGY? • Provides focus on what could not be done before • Breaks current paradigm • Enhances effectiveness • Enhances efficiency

  17. WHAT CAN I DO WITH THE TECHNOLOGY? • Provides focus on what could not be done before • Breaks current paradigm • Enhances effectiveness • Enhances efficiency DELIVER LEARNING more accessible - more efficient - more affordable - more effective

  18. NC PACE CONTRACT – COET • MS in Engineering Management • CD-ROM based delivery • Any place/anytime format • 500 new MS students in 2001

  20. TRENDS/ISSUES OF MAJOR CONCERN IDENTIFIED IN A SURVEY OF 300 CEO’s • Globalization (94%) • Improving knowledge management (88%) • Cost and cycle time reduction (79%) • Improving supply chains globally (78%) • Manufacturing at multiple locations in many countries (76%) • Managing the use of more part-time, temporary, and contract workers (71%)

  21. Global Engineering • Upper division cluster • Minor • MSE Global Engineering

  22. CLUSTER MINOR Just add an internship Take just three courses …and take on the world …and add GLOBAL to your resume TAKE THESE TWO… • Global Engineering and Project Management • Communication Across Cultures • …THEN CHOOSE ONE MORE.. • International Business Operations • Sustainable Development • World Resources Internship in Global Engineering • Our Global Engineering Cluster and Minor Provide you with • …an understanding of the interconnected context of global markets, transnational corporate operations, and global technology standards • …an understanding of the global nature of natural resources and their protection • …exposure to various international regulatory bodies and standards • Global Engineering gives you the knowledge to work productively in an environment that encompasses different cultures,business practices, resources,communications, and engineering practices

  25. GLOBAL ENGINEERING MASTERS International Network for Higher Education in Engineering Kaiserslauten Informatics Helsinki Robotics • DEGREE STRUCTURE • Each institution guarantees a specific engineering specialization offered in English in a given semester • Students must take specialization semesters at two institutions (24 credit hours) • Students must do comprehensive project at any of the institutions (6 credit hours) • ODU will award Master of Engineering to any student who does a specialization semester at ODU • In addition to any M.Sc. Degree awarded by partner institutions • Thus, in some cases, students will be awarded both a U.S. and European degree Borlange Product Innovation Berne Management Vlissingen Logistics Wroclaw Biomedical Annecy Environmental

GLOBAL ENGINEERING MASTERS International Network for Higher Education in Engineering Kaiserslauten Informatics Helsinki Robotics • ODU SPECIALIZATIONS • Engineering Management • Project Management • Electrical Engineering • Computer Engineering • Telecommunications • Norfolk • Northern Virginia Borlange Product Design Berne Management Vlissingen Logistics Wroclaw Biomedical Annecy Environmental

  27. GLOBAL ENGINEERING MASTERS International Network for Higher Education in Engineering Kaiserslauten Informatics Helsinki Robotics • FINANCIAL ASPECTS • INHEE Students will be treated as in state ODU students • ODU students will be treated as local INHEE students • In most cases, ODU students will not pay tuition while studying at an INHEE institution Borlange Product Innovation Berne Management Vlissingen Logistics Wroclaw Biomedical Annecy Environmental

  28. Increasingly, the teamwork and the tools of engineering are moving to the Internet2 …

  29. e-engineering @ odu Virtual collaborative environments across the curriculum Hit the ground running ready to join virtual project teams working around the globe creating tomorrow’s products today!

  30. E-ENGINEERING – WHAT IS IT? Distributed collaboration in cyberspace using leading edge technologies enabling physically-dispersed, diverse teams to learn and to create integrated, innovative and competitive products, systems, and services¹.

  32. WHO NEEDS TO KNOW? • Current Students • In appropriate class • Current Practitioners • On the job (needs to know NOW)

  33. WHO KNOWS? • Isolated “narrow” experts (research driven) • Distributed across multiple institutions

  34. CHALLENGE • Bring knowledge needed, when needed, to where it is needed • By the best authorities • In the most effective and efficient manner possible

  35. Hierarchical Learning Network Institution B Institution A Synergistic coupling of advanced instructional, communications, knowledge management, assessment and evaluation technologies Knowledge modules Knowledge modules Expert led distributed learning environment learner Collaborative learning environment Individual learning environment Knowledge modules Knowledge modules Institution C Use ofinterrogative visualization, multimedia,intelligent software agents, virtual reality, multimodal and adaptive human computer/communication technologies Institution D
