Modern industrial products incorporate a variety of different technologies, making it is necessary for engineers to understand and appreciate disciplines other than their own. In order to cultivate engineers capable of meeting the demands of the present and future industrial world, the development of interdisciplinary educational curriculums is essential. In this study, an electric vehicle experiment system is used as a teaching aid to promote interdisciplinary thought development. This paper explores the concept behind the curriculum, the configuration of a constructed system, and reports on an evaluation of the initial class. The effectiveness of the curriculum is clarified.
