MACHINE THEORY AT INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING DEGREES Lluïsa Jordi Nebot, Rosa Pàmies-Vilà, Pau Català Calderon, Joan Puig-Ortiz Department of Mechanical Engineering, Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya Spain , , , Received September 2012 Accepted December 2012 Abstract This article examines new tutoring evaluation methods to be adopted in the course, Machine Theory, in the Escola Tècnica Superior d’Enginyeria Industrial de Barcelona (ETSEIB, Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya). These new methods have been developed in order to facilitate teaching staff work and include students in the evaluation process. Machine Theory is a required course with a large number of students. These students are divided into groups of three, and required to carry out a supervised work constituting 20% of their final mark. These new evaluation methods were proposed in response to the significant increase of students in spring semester of 2010-2011, and were pilot tested during fall semester of academic year 2011-2012, in the previous Industrial Engineering degree program. Pilot test results were highly satisfactory for students and teachers, alike, and met proposed educational objectives. For this reason, the new evaluation methodology was adopted in spring semester of 2011-2012, in the current bachelor’s degree program in Industrial Technology (Grau en Enginyeria en Tecnologies Industrials, GETI), where it has also achieved highly satisfactory results. Keywords – Supervised work, large groups, evaluation. ---------- 1 INTRODUCTION Machine Theory is a required course, originally taken during the fourth semester of the former Industrial Engineering degree program at ETSEIB. The course is taught twice a year (during the fall semester –FS– and spring semester –SS–), and has a 6 credit .
