Online Automation & Control: An Experiment in Distance Engineering Education
Online distance education is the latest trend in the education industry. Even though most of the courses offered today are non-technical, there is a large market for online technical education leading to graduate and undergraduate accredited degrees. This paper studies the current state of the online education industry and proposes ways and means for providing comprehensive laboratory based technical degrees through online distance education. The paper also presents innovative approaches and coursework developed at the University of Bridgeport, to provide laboratory-based accredited programs.
