To address the, industry-expressed concern about the limited level of knowledge of Engineering Codes and Standards by graduates of undergraduate ME degree programs, ASME developed and field-tested engineering standards instructional packages designed to be readily inserted into specific types of undergraduate courses. With support from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), ASME assembled a team of standards experts and engineering faculty to collaboratively devise and test an approach to infuse chosen standards content into selected undergraduate courses - strategically spread through each of the typical four years. The goal is to develop and field test instructional resources that were easily accessible, curriculum compatible, faculty-friendly, and ABET responsive with instructor guides that efficiently insert engineering standards material into existing course content with examples and test problems. Eight (8) engineering and standards instructional packages are currently being tested in 19 institutions at the baccalaureate and associate degree levels. After field testing, the modules will begin to be made available online at no cost in the Fall of 2019. The program aims to reach and assess impact on as many faculty and students as practical worldwide and to determine the next set of standards and target courses for further development.
