Norwich University, David Crawford School of Engineering, Northfield, VT

March 14, 2013 – March 16, 2013

Conference theme: The Citizen Engineer. March 15 & 16, 2013

Norwich University, David Crawford School of Engineering was pleased to host the 2013 ASEE Northeast Section Conference. Norwich University is a private university, combining military tradition of nearly two centuries and a broad range of traditional undergraduate degree programs. The university was founded in 1819 by Captain Alden Partridge, as the first private military college in the United States and the birthplace of the nation’s Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) program.

Celebrating Nearly 200 Years of Engineering Excellence

Norwich University has been a leader in engineering excellence for nearly 200 years – longer than any other private U.S. academic institution. Norwich University was the first private U.S. institution of higher learning to offer engineering, and its graduates have made their mark on the world in many ways. From railroads to the first alternating- current electrical plant, founder Capt. Alden Partridge’s foresight and commitment to engineering education has pushed design, construction and manufacturing to new heights. The David Crawford School of Engineering remains faithful to his vision and legacy, training its engineering students to test their skills, expand their intellectual understanding and surpass their expectations.

Our Commitment to Hands-on Learning

Norwich University was founded on the idea that people learn better by doing, and our engineering students are constantly challenged with hands-on, real-world engineering work, teaching invaluable lessons that go well beyond the academic classroom and lab. Whether it means joining a scientific team living in Antarctica, participating in a multi-university effort to improve the effectiveness of NASA “CubeSat” miniature satellites, finding ways to increase a solar panel’s efficiency, or reviving an old water-powered electrical plant, Norwich engineering students apply the knowledge they gain in classrooms to challenges from the outside world.

Students also participate in design contests, such as the American Society of Civil Engineers-run intercollegiate steel bridge and concrete canoe competitions, or the International Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Competition. Fostering excitement and challenge, these projects are carefully mentored by engineering faculty and industry experts, gaining students firsthand experience in testing, design and construction.
