Description: The automobile has been a source of engineering discoveries and employment for the last century. Many different disciplines go into the manufacturing and design of the automobile. The principles of the different engineering technology disciplines can be shown through the use of a general automotive technology course. At the University of Dayton the graduates of the engineering technology program have a good chance of interviewing and possibly even taking a job in the automotive field. It was felt that the students would benefit from taking a course in basic automotive engineering to allow them to have knowledge of these principles before interviewing for a position in one of these companies. This course would introduce them to basic systems, components, and terminology as it applies to many engineering technology disciplines. Also the business aspect would be developed as well as how government regulations influence automotive design. This paper describes the process of developing this class as well as some of the details and how it relates to a multi-disciplinary engineering technology program.
