Evaluating students' performance in a new course sequence with economic and design principles in the undergraduate engineering curriculum Conference Paper uri icon


  • This paper presents some of the results obtained from a four-year project conducted at the Georgia Institute of Technology and Virginia Polytechnic Institute. For this project, four engineering science courses were modified to include economic and design principles. The primary objective of this experiment was to investigate on how the integration of economic principles with design can effectively be used to teach engineering science courses in the undergraduate engineering curriculum.
