ENGR 1620 - Introduction to Engineering

Provides an overview of the engineering profession and the disciplines and functions within engineering. Introduces students to engineering design, and the role of creativity in the solution of open-ended (design) problems. The conceptual understanding and skills needed to apply the engineering method are integrated into a significant, hands-on, case study project. This project, which is intended to be both fun and challenging, focuses on a realistic problem, requiring a balance of engineering analysis and the economic, cultural, political and other considerations needed to achieve a successful solution. In addition to the fundamental role of engineering analysis and optimization, students also develop computer skills using spreadsheet and math solver applications and apply these to engineering problem solving. Prerequisite: enrollment in engineering or permission of course coordinator.Corequisite; ENGR 1621
