All freshmen engineering students at Rowan University are introduced to engineering experiments and calculations through a series of modules in measurements. The primary goal of this course is to expose freshmen engineering students to multidisciplinary projects that teach engineering principles using the theme of engineering measurements in both laboratory and real-world settings. This concept is an inversion of the traditional laboratory curriculum paradigm. The current situation is that freshman programs focus either on a design project or discipline-specific experiments that may not be cohesively integrated. In real-world settings engineers work in multidisciplinary teams on a variety of complex problems. The fundamental principles of measurement and their application are crucial to the solution of these problems.
