Abstract

This paper describes the content of two new introductory freshman courses used both the Electrical and Mechanical Engineering Technology programs at Penn State. These introductory courses are required in the first semester for both programs as part of a new curriculum composing of a "common freshman year" for both the Electrical and Mechanical Technology programs. 1 The rationale for creating these courses was to provide students with a better broad overview of both respective fields resulting in students making a more informed choice in selecting to pursue either an EET or MET degree. Additionally these courses will help inspire students for future concentrated study by recognizing the end result applications of both disciplines by studying systems comprising of electrical and mechanical elements.
