Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology
From 1990-91 until 2000-01, Rose-Hulman offered an Integrated,
First-Year Curriculum in Science, Engineering, and Mathematics (IFYCSEM).
As a part of IFYCSEM, students took a three-hour examination every
two weeks that drew upon all the disciplines that were integrated
within IFYCSEM: physics, chemisty, calculus, engineering design,
computer science, and engineering graphics. The collection of integrated
examples is available
at the Rose-Hulman Foundation Coalition web site.
Texas A&M University
From 1994-95 until 1997-98, Texas A&M University University
offered a pilot of an integrated, first-year curriculum that linked
calculus, chemistry, physics, engineering, and composition. As a
part of the pilot curricula, faculty members offered examinations
that drew upon the different disciplines. Samples of the integrated
examinations can be found below.
