Abstract

This study presents a series of methodical curriculum development and revision activities in the new Mechanical Engineering Technology program at Missouri State University to incorporate a comprehensive engineering design content. A sequence of five courses in the curriculum are restructured to emphasize different aspects and dimensions of engineering design. Incorporated with Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET) accreditation requirements, courses are linked to emphasize different aspects of engineering design throughout the curriculum. Students complete integrative design projects in this sequence of courses and apply the theory in real-world engineering problems. Enterprise skills, including teamwork, professionalism, and recognizing ethical values are also integrated into the curriculum with these course projects. The resulting curriculum is relevant in that it tailors to the needs of regional industry partners and practical in that it provides hands-on education, resulting in employment-ready graduates.
