The Penn State Associate Degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology program offers a two course sequence in mechanics of materials, one of which is a laboratory course (MCH T 214). The educational objectives of this one credit course, as described in the Penn State Associate Degree Programs Bulletin, are "measurement of mechanical properties of materials; structural testing; data acquisition and analysis; technical report writing." Components of this course were revised to incorporate multimedia software into the laboratory experience. For the first time students were given an opportunity to integrate communications software, online web research, photo and video software, spreadsheet software, word processing, and presentation software. Accomplishments and future goals in the evolution of this course are discussed.
