Contact Name: Deran Hanesian Organization:New Jersey Institute of Technology

To enhance the abilities of students taking NJIT's Fundamentals of Engineering Design course, the authors developed a workbook concept that was modeled after the freshman chemistry workbooks used at NJIT.  The workbook concept follows a block building, step by step approach to the problem solution. The student must understand the first steps before moving on to the next part of the analysis.  This poster presentation describes a workbook for the siting and process design of a municipal wastewater facility.  This project was team taught by faculty in Civil Engineering and Chemical Engineering.  Student feedback indicates that the workbook significantly improved the learning experience while avoiding the "cookbook" style found in other workbooks.
