New Engineering Courseware Receives Awards
November 27, 2009

Professor Joseph G. Tront

The 2009 Premier Award for Excellence in Engineering Education Courseware was awarded to two groups for new products called SIMSE and CATME/Team-Maker, according to Joseph G. Tront, Virginia Tech professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the editor of the Premier Award program.

SimSE is a game-based educational software engineering simulation environment that allows students to practice “virtual” software engineering processes in a graphical, interactive, and fun setting. Its designers are a team from the University of California at Irvine led by project scientist Emily Navarro who was assisted by Andre van der Hoek.

The second winning team created The Comprehensive Assessment of Team Member Effectiveness (CATME)/Team-Maker. It is an integrated and well-tested system that helps manage teams in engineering courses. Matthew W. Ohland of Purdue University led this effort.

Both pieces of software are available online, at the Engineering Pathway Premier web page.
