Abstract

The Arizona State University is a member of the Foundation Coalition, and NSF-sponsored Engineering Education Coalition. In the Fall '94 semester, an integrated introductory course was delivered to freshman engineering students at ASU as part of the Foundation Coalition Program. The course combined and integrated material from introductory courses in calculus, physics, English composition, and engineering, normally taught in a stand-alone format. Engineering projects were used to teach design and modeling principles. Furthermore, considerable computers were employed in an active learning environment that stressed teaming and other quality tools.
