Module 1: Design Project

In this module you will start to develop the professional skills used by engineers as you tackle a multidisciplinary open-ended problem with the rest of your team. We hope to inspire a sense of curiosity about engineering work while complementing the science and mathematics content of your other courses. In this module we focus on five fundamental engineering skills:

● design and creativity
● project management
● information management
● teamwork
● communications

This course is primarily student-directed – there are no regular lectures, exams, or quizzes. As such, each student team has the opportunity to learn independently and apply creativity to solve the design problem. Because the project is student-directed, the skills and knowledge you learn will be directly related to the effort you put into it.
