Foundations of engineering-a first year course
Date of Original Version
The University of Rhode Island College of Engineering has introduced a common freshman course with key issues of retention, recruitment and diversity. The academic goals of the course include introducing them to effective hands-on experiences with the computer, development of communication skills and the foundations of manufacturing. These foundations include teaming, communication, vocabulary, a concept of quality, economics and the environment. All six engineering departments at the University of Rhode Island have modified their curriculum to make room for these courses.
