Abstract - The hallmark of the newly configured Rowan College of Engineering undergraduate program is multidisciplinary education with a laboratory emphasis. The development of a new multidisciplinary control laboratory upholds our hallmark very well. We attempt to address the demand of industry for acquiring control engineers (1) with a broad set of skills and a comprehension of the diverse practical applications of control and (2) who can move across rather artificial program boundaries with great ease. Multidisciplinary experiments that integrate hands-on experience and software simulation are investigated. The experiments expose the students to Proportional, Integral and Derivative (PID) control using a DC motor, engine speed control apparatus and feedback process control. This enables electrical, mechanical and chemical engineering students to learn the fundamental theory and physical implementation of various types of control systems. Introduction The control systems laboratory is an integrated effort by the Faculty of Engineering at Rowan University to configure a novel hands-on method of teaching Control Systems from a multidisciplinary point of view. The Electrical, Mechanical and Chemical Engineering programs are joining together to achieve this. Although Control is an interdisciplinary technology, there has historically been a tendency for the different engineering departments to teach the subject from their very own somewhat narrow perspective without any semblance of collaboration. This project attempts to address the demand of industry for acquiring control engineers with a broad set of skills and a comprehension of the diverse practical applications of Control [1]. This project is in accordance with the multidisciplinary aim of our new programs and strives to meet the requirements of industry in hiring control engineers who can move across rather artificial program boundaries with great ease. “Proceedings of the 2001 American Society for Engineering Education Annual Conference & Exposition Copyright  2001, American Society for Engineering Education”
