Integrated Freshman/Sophomore Curriculum
The Louisiana Tech College of Engineering and Science provides an integrated engineering curriculum which combines engineering, math, chemistry, and physics. This program provides:
•Better integration of courses - Students can make connections between math, chemistry,
physics, and engineering.
•Collaborative learning environment - Students learn teamwork, creative problem solving, and engineering design.
•Better interaction between students and faculty - Classes use cooperative learning techniques, and faculty have moved from the traditional “chalk and talk,” teacher-centered approach to a learner-centered approach.
Goals of the Four-Year Engineering Curriculum
Freshman: To build student knowledge of basic English, mathematics, and science with a progressive introduction to engineering throughout the freshman year.
Integrated Freshman Engineering Curriculum
Sophomore: To continue to strengthen student knowledge of mathematics, while providing a breadth of knowledge in a number of key engineering subjects.
Integrated Sophomore Engineering Curriculum
Junior: To focus on the engineering fundamentals required for a specific engineering discipline.
Senior: To use the tools developed in the first three years to solve specialized engineering problems.
