Abstract

In the fall of 1996, faculty in engineering, mathematics, and physics departments at Auburn University launched an experimental pre-engineering program. The 2-year program consists of a team-taught sequence of mathematics, engineering, and physics courses that have been integrated so as to enable pre-engineering students to grasp the interrelatedness of the concepts in each of these domains. The program is undergirded by a strong and comprehensive mathematics foundation. Enhanced usage of computing/visualization technology and an academic environment specifically structured to encourage and motivate students to learn are also programmatic features. Reported in this paper are results from an on-going evaluation of this program.
