Abstract for the conference program

We will report on the results of an externally funded project to improve student interest in engineering using project-based teaching and learning and Tablet Pc technology. Changes were made in some of the fundamental engineering courses to include hands-on projects, field trips and also invited speakers to the classroom. The results suggest that these changes can improve retention in engineering.
