In Spring term 1997, a meaningful freshman engineering design experience course with an interdisciplinary environmental approach was offered at New Jersey Institute of Technology. The course was taught by faculty from the Chemical and Civil Engineering Departments. Students, grouped into four teams, and were assigned the problem of Siting and Design of a Manufacturing Facility using Hazardous Materials. The process design was for a plant to manufacture aspirin. The project simulated a contract undertaken by a consulting firm to site and design the plant with the assignment given to entry level engineers. At the end of the semester, with the completion of their study, each team submitted a written report and orally presented their recommendations regarding the selected site and the aspirin production requirements to the class and faculty.
