Rowan University's COE offers students an exciting and innovative technical communication and design curricula. All engineering students, at the beginning of their sophomore year, enroll in Sophomore Clinic, the second year of Rowan's unique Clinic program. While all four years of Rowan's clinic curricula are multidisciplinary, Sophomore Clinic I provides the students with the opportunity to experience a collaborative environment where a team of communications and engineering faculty work together to educate students in the "real-world" environment of engineering design - an environment that addresses the skills of designer, planner, presenter, builder, team-leader, writer, evaluator, researcher - all in the context of a engineering-lab-based version of what most sophomore engineering students in other programs experience as Composition II.
