|ENGG1015||Introduction to Engineering Design and Problem Solving||2 ch (1C, 2L)|
This course introduces engineering design methodology and develops basic problem solving techniques. Under the supervision of senior students and with the guidance of industry engineers, students work both individually and in teams on real engineering design projects for the local community in a simulated engineering consulting environment. Project planning, team- building, leadership and responsible care are discussed. Laboratories are used to demonstrate problem solving techniques for analytical and open-ended problems, and life-long learning is emphasized by having students integrate co-requisite and researched material into a structured design process. Restricted to students with fewer than 60 ch of program credit upon first admission to the Faculty of Engineering or with permission of the instructor.
