Co-Director, Capstone Partnership with Michael Doran


The Capstone Partnership is a cooperative arrangement between CEE and groups and institutions that develops and fosters strategic partnerships to explor engineering design challenges.

 

The core purpose of the partnership is to organize and implement specific student projects meeting the deisn needs of the sponsors. The Partnership also secures funding to support instruction as well as other costs associated with the course.

Research Interests

Interdisciplinary & cross-curricular teams

I am interested in advancing the collaboration of Civil Engineering Capstone student teams with student teams (and their mentors) from other disciplines to form a larger working project teams. These multi-discipline teams are currently formed with students from other disciplines within the College of Engineering and from UW-Madison Department of Landscape Architecture, UW-Milwaukee School of Architecture and Urban Planning and Madison College Architectural Technology Program.

 

The student teams research and design broader aspects of the project, integrating the design of systems and components and relating to the user group/client in a manner closely simulating real world situations. With the help of mentors to orchestrate and encourage, students are brought out of their “silo” or area of expertise to strengthen interplay, participation and communication between disciplines.

 

Collaboration relative to the student team focuses on working together to realize shared goals by sharing knowledge and learning, building consensus and developing leadership within the team. Students must develop the ability to work effectively and respectfully within these diverse teams. Students must learn participation and thinking strategies while collaborating and negotiating with people of related disciplines. The team members learn to be good listeners and to articulate ideas effectively using oral, written and nonverbal communication skills in a variety of forms and contexts.
