Temple University has a core curriculum in which science and technology is a component. The university requires each of its students to select two courses in science and technology from a list of approved courses. Four years ago the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department began to offer a menu of engineering and technology courses to the student body as part of the science and technology component of the core. These courses have been taught on three of Temple's campuses and are available to every student in the university. This paper presents the rationale that led the department faculty to make such a major commitment of its intellectual resources. Also described are the courses that have been offered and how they have been accepted by the student body at large. Lessons learned from our experiences are presented as well as what is hoped to be achieved in the future
