We `create’ a basis set for construction of new multidisciplinary design (MDD) courses and projects by the decomposition of the many examples of such activities within the SUCCEED coalition. The development of such a `basis set’ for this new area of engineering education allows engineering faculty and their non-engineering faculty and professional colleagues to create new versions of MDD experiences which can be conveniently integrated into the local campus needs and engineering school mission.
