ENES100: Introduction to Engineering Design

This course introduces you to engineering and the engineering design process. While working in teams to design, build, test, and analyze a number of challenging robotics-oriented projects, you’ll learn fundamental engineering analysis methods and how to apply them using software packages. Communication skills are an important part of the design process, and you’ll present your designs to fellow participants as well as faculty from the School of Engineering. Teams also use their creative and technical talents to develop their own unique team Web site. In addition to the robotics projects, you’ll build a sensing device to remotely measure temperature, program the acquisition system to take the measurements, and, finally, analyze the data that is recorded. You’ll be introduced to the various departments of the School of Engineering and have the opportunity to talk to faculty and students, tour facilities, participate in laboratory demonstrations, and get detailed information about the discipline.
