The importance of team-teaching in an integrated Freshman engineering curriculum, called IMPEC (for integrated mathematics, physics, engineering, and chemistry curriculum), is discussed. The goals of the curriculum are to provide motivation and context for the fundamental material taught, a realistic and positive orientation to the engineering profession, and training in the problem solving. The curriculum is taught by a disciplinary team of professors using a combination of traditional lecturing and alternative instructional methods. Necessary conditions for successful team teaching includes adequate incentives and support for program faculty, compatible faculty members, and a faculty team that understands the program's philosophy and goals.
