Engineering Design (EDSGN) 100 provides students with a foundation for engineering design through hands-on team projects that address specified design opportunities. Through this course, students will recognize the roles that engineering and design have in improving the health, safety, and welfare of the global community, as well as identifying when a solution is technically feasible, economically viable, and desirable.
Students will use a range of design tools and techniques to carry out and communicate their design processes as applied to their projects. Additionally, students will develop and practice professional skills, such as communication, teamwork, and ethical decision making. Course delivery will be via faculty-led lessons, hands-on activities, and discussions.
