According to Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) outcome 3d, graduates from engineering programs must have the ability to function on multidisciplinary teams. Unfortunately, evaluation shows that engineering students are not well positioned to understand new concepts from a variety of disciplines and integrate them into what they learn in their own disciplines. This is especially true for concepts in emerging areas, such as life sciences.Â Obviously the emergence of technological breakthroughs in new arenas is stimulating faculty members to include related multidisciplinary concepts in their course designs so that students can be prepared to meet the industrial challenges presented in applying new technologies within industrial settings.
