A multi-disciplinary effort was initiated at Michigan Technological University, with a support from the U.S. National Science Foundation’s Engineering Education division. The goal was to create a curriculum that (1) encourages students to pursue the life-long learning necessary to keep pace with the rapidly-evolving engineering industry and emerging interdisciplinary technologies, (2) maintains sufficient connection between the students’ chosen engineering fields and class content; and (3) motivates and excite the students about the importance of EE concepts to their discipline and career. Seven faculty members across different departments contributed to this process. Participating departments included: electrical engineering, chemical engineering, civil and environmental engineering, mechanical engineering, biomedical engineering, and the education division of the cognitive and learning science department. The group’s curriculum reform efforts were informed by a nationwide survey of engineering schools. The survey outcomes were analyzed to fine tune different curriculum options for this course for different engineering disciplines. Then, those options were integrated to create the final draft of the curriculum. The final draft of the curriculum was used as a layout to create a new textbook for this course. Although no single text can perfectly meet the needs of every institution, diverse topics have been included to address the mixed survey response and allow this book to address the needs of lecturers in different institutions worldwide. The resulting textbook creates a prototype curriculum available to electrical engineering departments that are charged with providing an introduction to electrical engineering for non-EE majors. The goals of this new curriculum are to be attractive, motivational, and relevant to students by creating many application-based problems; and provide the optimal level of both range and depth of coverage of EE topics in a curriculum package.
