This paper discusses the final curriculum under development at Michigan Tech that addresses the main needs of the multi-disciplinary course “Introduction to Electrical Engineering for Non-majors.” This is a course that is offered by all engineering schools worldwide. In order to identify important topics and an optimized approach, a multi-disciplinary panel was established at Michigan Tech. In order to identify the essential curriculum, we prepared a survey and distributed it to faculty members in departments served by the course, as well as to undergraduate and graduate students. The survey results were used to create the curriculum. The revised curriculum was taught for three semesters. Feedback data were received from students and instructors after each cycle and analyzed to provide feedback. Their results are being incorporated to shape a curriculum that will be published by John Wiley in the near future.
