Engineering Design at Harvey Mudd College: Innovation Institutionalized, Lessons Learned
This paper outlines the development of Harvey Mudd College’s Engineering program, describes its resulting form, and articulates how some truly innovative ideas in engineering design education, now widely accepted as “best practices,” were developed and implemented. The paper also describes the lessons learned from Harvey Mudd College’s Engineering curriculum, as well as some of the efforts made to disseminate these lessons.
