Student Projects

Student Design Projects Description

The Engineering Clinic concept is a signature component of Rowan's engineering curriculum. Patterned loosely after the medical education model, the clinic is the place where students, faculty, theory and engineering applications converge. It is the place where students learn first-hand about engineering under the guidance of engineers, in a project-oriented manner. The Engineering Clinics are a continuous and substantial part of the curriculum, totaling 20-24 hours varying from two to four hours every semester over the four years.

The Engineering Clinic delivers on the following goals of the Rowan Engineering program:

Hands-on - Have students use what they're learning about.

Integrated - Demonstrate correlations with supporting course work.

Multidisciplinary - Involve students as a community of problem solvers.

Teamwork - Emphasize the advantage of effective teaming.

Communication - Develop excellent oral and written communication skills.

Entrepreneurial - Reinforce value-based engineering.

Contextual - Help students understand the big picture.

The Engineering Clinics for first-year students focus on basic, introductory skills. In the second year, engineering students are introduced to multidisciplinary action through a number of projects. In the third and fourth years, students participate in team projects that feature joint ventures with industry partners.

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.
