The development of the curriculum of a program normally includes academic considerations that promote knowledge acquisition of the student. In this paper the authors discuss how the Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Science programs at Texas A&M International University are also incorporating assessment tools to design specific target courses in their curriculum. The development of such strategy has followed a process that has involved all faculty members in the related disciplines. Every program has five outcomes, of which three are common to all programs. The department is also targeting specific courses in its programs to measure these outcomes, and is using the results of this assessment to rethink the way a course is being offered. This paper presents some results.
