This course is an introduction to the engineering profession, which uses a multidisciplinary approach to the solution of problems that are societally relevant. It utilizes various activities structured to: foster the generation and exploration of creative ideas, develop systems, and use quantitative methods and data analysis to support design decisions. Modeling-development activities (engineering eliciting activities, EEAs) are used to challenge students to think innovatively across the engineering disciplines. The students will experience design and analysis processes in engineering, including: effective teamwork, project management, engineering fundamentals, engineering ethics, oral and graphical communication, logical and critical thinking, and modern computer-based engineering tools. 2 lecture hours.

Prerequisite(s): Students must qualify for MATH 102 , or higher.
