Course Description

Explores design strategies and design thinking to define multiple options to engineering problems that satisfy technical and social requirements. Practices professional engineering and communication skills that contribute to the success of teams. Applies appropriate hardware and software tools to implement one or more solutions to a design problem.

Course learning outcomes

1. Apply convergent and divergent thinking to a team design project.
2. Model best practices in collaborative problem solving in engineering.
3. Apply computational tools to solve an engineering problem.
4. Create a work plan for an engineering team design project.
5. Employ best practices in technical communication.
6. Diagnose errors and uncertainties in an engineering solution.

Content outline

The outcomes of this course will be met through a project based curriculum that aligns with content in ENGR 100. A primary focus of this course will be CAD/CAM skills and fabrication techniques that are central to modern engineering practice. This course is designed to have adaptable content to serve the needs of a range of different engineering programs. Hands on design and build skills will be embedded along with introductory applications of engineering and mathematical tools. Documentation of projects through technical writing as well as public presentations will form a natural part of the curriculum.

Required materials

Students will need calculators, access to the network, and access to suitable computer resources for software and other tools necessary for the projects in this course. Students may be required to purchase a license for CAD/CAM software associated with this course.
