New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) has articulation agreements with nineteen (19) county and community colleges in New Jersey which essentially ensures that their graduates can transfer into NJIT programs with a minimum of disruption. However, with the advent of Freshman Engineering Design (FED) and Freshman Engineering courses, which have been incorporated into the curriculum at NJIT, some difficulties arise for students transferring from the community colleges to NJIT. Some reasons for this are lack of staff familiar with subject areas, lack of resources and unavailability of space and equipment. To address these problems and continue to ease accessibility to transfer, NJIT has begun a cooperative effort to help develop inexpensive experiments; transfer non-laboratory based courses; and find industrial sources for equipment. These developments will allow the community colleges to incorporate the FED/FE component courses into their curriculum. This paper will describe efforts between New Jersey Institute of Technology and Hudson County Community College (HCCC) to devise a course that meets the freshman engineering requirements.
