Identify your sources with properly formatted citations

This project also shows different ways of defining and solving complex problems depending on the perspective of the team.


Read about the NAE Grand Challenges of Engineering and select 1 challenge to research using the library database Compendex (Engineering Village) see HW04 for details, and remember that you cannot select the Grand Challenge Provide Access to Clean Water and Making Solar Energy Economical .
During your research, select 2 journal articles and/or conference papers that approach the challenge using different strategies. The journal articles/conference papers should be closely related (similar specific topics).
Read the articles and take notes. Focus your reading on the Introduction, Literature Review, and/or Background sections. Specifically look at how the author(s) write about the problem identification as well as review and cite relevant literature related to the problem.
Write a compare and contrast paper (you are NOT summarizing the articles/papers) informing the audience how the authors began to solve the complex problem stated within the NAE Grand Challenge, again focusing on problem identification and the relevant literature.
Repeat the process of selecting and researching a Grand Challenge for Tech Brief #2 and the Presentation (note: this portion of the project is later in the semester).
Content of Submissions (both written and oral):

Briefly, describe the NAE Grand Challenge, focusing on the need for this research or development.
Compare and Contrast the technology presented in your sources (problem identification, proposed solution, methods, DATA, conclusions, and/or future work).
Identify your sources with properly formatted citations. A minimum of 3 sources are required; 2 must be the journal articles/conference papers. The third reference may be the NAE Grand Challenges website; additional sources (but not Wikipedia) may be used. You must use the IEEE citation style.
