Engineering Clinics

The Clinic concept is the signature facet of Rowan's unique engineering curriculum. Inspired by the medical education model, the clinic program is the place where students, faculty, theory and engineering applications converge. It's the place where students experience a hands-on approach to learning about engineering, under the guidance of credentialed engineers. Clinics are a continuous and substantial part of the curriculum and thread the entire four-year undergraduate program.

Clinics deliver the following goals of the engineering curriculum:

  • Hands on - Students apply what they are 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.
