A new interdisciplinary design course has been developed. A unique feature of this course is the participation of alumni who have been involved with engineering practice for a number of years. These alumni assume the role of clients for the design project. Their involvement added unique insights to the real practice of engineering design. It also greatly enhanced student interest in the course.
