The Rowan University engineering curriculum includes an interdisciplinary first year sequence, Freshmen Engineering Clinic I and II (FEC I and II), which is required for students in all engineering disciplines. Each course has one 75-minute "unlecture" period and one 165-minute "laboratory" period each week. Instructional objectives for the sequence include general engineering skills such as engineering communication, collection and presentation of data, basic statistics, dimensional analysis and unit conversions, etc. During the 2018-2019 academic year, FEC I and II were each offered in 17 sections of approximately 20 students each. Each section of FEC II, which is in progress at time of writing, is incorporating two major projects, each of which is 5 weeks in duration.
