John B. Peatman Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering
Edward Coyle is the John B. Peatman Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology and a Georgia Research Alliance Eminent Scholar. He is the Director of the Vertically Integrated Projects (VIP) Program, which integrates research and education by embedding large-scale, long-term teams of undergraduates in the research efforts of faculty and their graduate students. He also Directs the VIP Consortium: 24 universities that have VIP Programs and work together to improve and disseminate the results of their work. Coyle was a co-recipient of the U.S. National Academy of Engineering’s 2005 Bernard M. Gordon Prize for Innovation in Engineering and Technology Education. Coyle is an IEEE Fellow and his current research interests include systemic reform of higher education, signal and information processing, and wireless and sensor networks.
The Vertically Integrated Projects (VIP) program unites undergraduate education and faculty research in a team-based context and has been established at 22 institutions. This session will explain this model and aspects of the Georgia Tech implementation that contribute to diversity, compare/contrast VIP with other models, identify VIP institutions that could serve as mentor sites and […]
