Abstract

This paper describes the process that was used to review and improve the Mechanical Engineering curriculum at Penn State University. The improvement process applied design methodology to review the present curriculum, develop alternate curriculum models, and evaluate those models. The curriculum models that were developed and challenges in implementing this process are also described.
