      Abstract:

      The Raritan Valley Community College (RVCC) Engineering program   launched a pilot hands-on "Authentic Engineering Experience"   course in Fall 2015 for a Team of four second-year RVCC   Engineering students to design, prototype, manufacture, and   deliver a real product to a real customer. The objective of the   pilot course was to expose students early in their academic   careers and under "authentic engineering" conditions, to vital   skills and practices used daily in industry. A secondary goal was   to give students product development and project execution   experience to relate to potential internship and professional   employers. This pilot course will be developed into a full course   consisting of 4-5 teams of four students (to maintain small-team   authenticity) starting in Fall 2016.
