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
