ENGR 371: Engineering Design and PHYS 371: Physics Project Lab

ENGR 371 / Engineering Design – Catalog Description

Applications of the engineering design process with a different emphasis each semester:

• Multidisciplinary teamwork (ENGR 371)
• Engineering design process (ENGR 372)
• Project management (ENGR 373)
• Realistic constraints and standards (ENGR 374)
• Business plan development (ENGR 375)

Reflective student design portfolio; regular student presentations on engineering topics outside existing curricula. Students demonstrate development with respect to expected learning outcomes through a series individual and team design projects on or off campus with individual faculty members, industry mentors or internships in appropriate local companies. Preference is given to vertically integrated teams comprising students at all levels.
