First-Year Engineering Students to Experience Flipped Classroom

First Year Engineering

The College of Engineering’s First-Year Engineering Program, provided through the Department of Engineering Fundamentals, is moving to a new model of instruction called a “flipped classroom.” The flipped classroom is grounded on the idea that students will prepare for class by doing readings and using other resources before class time. Once in class, students will work to solve problems, discuss applications of engineering and participate in engineering projects. To facilitate this model, each student must have a laptop of his or her own to prepare before class and to participate fully in class.

Incoming students for fall 2017 can review the laptop requirements through Undergraduate Admissions in preparation for this initiative.
