ENGR 401 - Multidisciplinary Design and Development I

A two-semester, multidisciplinary, capstone engineering design sequence; the primary objective of ENGR 401/402 is to provide students with a realistic and rigorous, culminating engineering design experience, which is reflective of contemporary professional practice. Key course attributes include the multidisciplinary composition of the engineering design teams (students and faculty from any department within SEAS, Commerce, Darden, Nursing, etc.), emphasis on aspects of modern practice (e.g. concurrent engineering, total quality management, and balanced consideration of the technological, organizational and cultural context) and realistic problems and client-stakeholders. A disciplined design/development process is followed that incorporates the important activities of contextual analysis, problem definition, customer needs definition, concept generation and selection, product specification, modeling and engineering analysis, proof of concept prototyping, design verification, cost analysis and project management and scheduling.
