A demanding, and perhaps original, engineering project performed under close supervision of a faculty member. The project must include design processes with appropriate constraints and use of standards. The scope of the project typically includes detail and final design work and construction of a working prototype. Progress reports, a final report, and a public seminar are required.
Students will develop their ability to: 1. Design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs, 2. Identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems, 3. The ability to design and conduct project-based experiments; analyzing, interpreting, and displaying the resulting data, 4. Consider and analyze appropriate financial, social, environmental, and ethical issues pertaining to a design project, 5. Communicate effectively orally and in writing, 6. Use the modern engineering tools to complete a design and build project.
This course will be hosted on Blackboard.
