EGR 131 - Introduction to Engineering Design (1)

The goal of engineering is to solve problems faced by society. In this course, students will learn how the engineering process works: defining the problem; conducting background research; constructing design criteria; evaluating and testing designs, and developing and testing prototypes. Students will also discuss and critically analyze papers discussing ethical issues that arise both during the design process as well as the interaction between technology and society. This course also emphasizes the importance of effective communication for engineers: students will be required to present their own reports (both oral and written) as well as critiquing other papers.
