Through events I have read and discussed recently, they leads me to several noble quotes from William Arthur Ward about education and teacher:

The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.”

Flatter me, and I may not believe you. Criticize me, and I may not like you. Ignore me, and I may not forgive you. Encourage me, and I will not forget you. Love me and I may be forced to love you"

Do more than belong: participate. Do more than care: help. Do more than believe: practice. Do more than be fair: be kind. Do more than forgive: forget. Do more than dream: work.

Four steps to achievement: Plan purposefully. Prepare prayerfully. Proceed positively. Pursue persistently.

"If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. If you can dream it, you can become it."

and they recall me, the human's duties as a chalip on earth:

"He it is who has placed you as caliph of the earth. And He has raised exalted some of you in rank above others, that He may try you by the test of that which He has given you. Surely your Lord is swift in prosecution , and He verily is Forgiving and Merciful"
Q.S. 6:156

a better live should be human responsibility to built and construct

"You are not here merely to make a living.
You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement.
You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand"
by Thomas Woodrow Wilson

ABET Programs

Engineering Programs must demonstrate the following 11 outcomes:
  1. an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering
  2. an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
  3. an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs
  4. an ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams
  5. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
  6. an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
  7. an ability to communicate effectively
  8. the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global and societal context
  9. recognition of the need for, and ability to engage in life-long learning
  10. knowledge of contemporary issues
  11. an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice

ABET EC 2000 Criteria Series (2)

Experiments and laboratory works enhance the ability to design a system component, or process to meet desired needs

Most persons have spent many hours performing experiments, during this time they will be asked to analyze and interpret the data.
What does this means?

Practicing through analyzing and interpreting the data will enhance the skill to design a system.

During the experiment, there are two simple part to do, firstly to reconstruct it trying to understand why each element is there, seccondly to determine what the experiment is trying to teach us.

Even though it may not always seem so, every experiment conducted will motivated to teach some one about something.

ABET EC 2000 Criteria Series (1)

An Ability to Apply Knowledge of Mathematics, Science and Engineering

The big question regarding the topic above is how do I develop and enhance this skill?

The best approach is to work as many problem as possible in all of courses.
I have to spend time for analyzing were, when and why I have difficulty in easily arriving at successfull solutions.

Some times taking time to think about the problem and how I should solve it will always save my time and frustation in the end

There are also six step roblem solving techniques:
(1) Carefully identifying the area where I have difficulty solving the problem
(2) Improve my defficiencies in understanding and (3) ability to use correctly certain mathematical principles
(4) Returning to my fundamental math text and (5) carefully review the appropriate sections and in some cases work some example problem in that text
(6) Keep nearby always alll my basic mathematics, science and engineering textbooks.

This process continually looking up material that I thought I had acquired in the earlier courses, and it may seem very tedious at first, however, as the skill develop and my knowledge increase, this process will become easier and easier.

Many people believed it is very process that led some one from being a much less than average student to some one who could earn the success in the future.

Degree in engineering

Each degree in engineeering represents certain skills the student acquires.
At bachelor degree level, student learns the language of engineering and the fundamental of engineering and design.
At master's level, student acquires the ability to do advanced engineeerig projects and to communicate his/her work effectively both orally and in writing.
The PhD represents a thorough understanding of the fundamentals of a certain field in engineering and mastery the skill necessary both for working at the frontiers of an engineering area and for communicating one's effort to others.

Source : IEEE 2005; C.K. Alexander and M.O Sadiku

Above all degree in engineering, an engineer should constantly educate him/her self, formally and informally, taking advantage of all means of education.

This philosophy should be in line with udlubul `ilma minal mahdi ilal lahdi.

The educators working in engineering educational institution should aware and understand the loads given to the students and provide the best example and condusive enviroment to study. This should become a comitment for any educators to built a better human resource in the future.

Lyrics inspiring the research

Astronaut 1: It never gets old, huh?
Astronaut 2: Nope. It kinda makes you want to…
Astronaut 1: Break into song?
Astronaut 2: Yup

I love the mountains, I love the clear blue skies
I love big bridges, I love when great whites fly
I love the whole world, and all its sights and sounds
Boom-de-ah-dah, Boom-de-ah-dah,
Boom-de-ah-dah, Boom-de-ah-dah

I love the oceans, I love real dirty things
I love to go fast, I love egyptian kings
I love the whole world, and all its craziness
Boom-de-ah-dah, Boom-de-ah-dah,
Boom-de-ah-dah, Boom-de-ah-dah

I love tornadoes, I love arachanids
I love hot magma, I love the giant squids
I love the whole world, it's such a brilliant place
Boom-de-ah-dah, Boom-de-ah-dah,
Boom-de-ah-dah, Boom-de-ah-dah,
Boom-de-ah-dah, Boom-de-ah-dah,
Boom-de-ah-dah, Boom-de-ah-dah,
Boom-de-ah-dah, Boom-de-ah-dah.

What a fun inside the lyrics?! Encouraging the spirit!!!
The World is Awesome

Alhamdulillah Ada lagi Juga

Setelah lama nggak punya blog, setelah hampir satu tahun baru kali ini buat blog lagi semoga bisa memacu banyak ide, amiiin
