|GTK-V -> Resources -> Welcome Letter and Project Description|
We would like to invite your school to participate with a team of engineering students in the fifth GLOBETECH international simulation offered in the Fall of 1999 via the Internet by the Nerken School of Engineering at Cooper Union, and sponsored by the NSF' s Gateway Engineering Education Coalition.
The GLOBETECH-V (GTK-V) simulation will take place between October 04 and December 10, 1999. Participation is free of any charge. The general theme of the simulation is: "Sustainable Development and Alternative Energy Source Applications" in both a developed country, the United States, and a developing country, South Africa. The two joint-venture projects to be discussed and negotiated during the simulation are:
The simulation works in the following manner:
The main benefits of The GLOBETECH simulation are:
In previous years the simulation was well received by students and faculty from such engineering schools as: Carnegie Mellon, Rensselaer Polytechnic, University of Nancy and the Albi School of Mines/ France, Iasi Technical University/Romania, St. Petersburg Technical University/Russia, and Tokyo Polytechnic/Japan.
The simulation is geared towards junior, senior and graduate engineering students. Since the treatment of the discussed projects is quite general, students from a variety of engineering management, environmental, electrical, mechanical, etc. courses can participate in the simulation. All the necessary background information and bibliography will be posted on the Internet, on the project's Home Page, prior to September 1, 1999.
For further details about our previous simulations, you are welcome to visit our GLOBETECH-IV (offered in the fall of 1998) site at: www.cooper.edu/GlobeTech-IV/ or contact Prof. Roxanne Jacoby at: email@example.com
Our GLOBETECH-V site is currently in development.
If you are not able to participate, please do us the favor of circulating this letter for the benefit of others who might be interested in this project.
Thank you for your attention,Prof. Roxanne Jacoby, P.E. e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Cooper Union, New York, U.S.A. June, 1999
