Introduction to Engineering Design with Professional Development I (ENGR 2050)Spring 2016 SyllabusCredit Hours:4COURSE DESCRIPTIONWhile the steps involved in the design process may change depending upon a variety of factors, most design experts agree thatthe design process starts with a thorough understanding of the problem, followed by a thorough exploration of possible conceptsolutions. Since design problems are by nature open-ended (meaning that there are many possible solutions) and multi-faceted(meaning that there are multiple levels of complexity), the process of problem definition followed by formulation of systemconcept solution is an iterative process that usually continues until a complete and unambiguous system solution is identified.Design is an iterative stepwise process that is best learned by doing.As a result, this is primarily a project-based course.In the real world, resources are rarely considered infinite, so the best engineering designers learn how to implement the designprocess using the most efficient and effective methods available.This course will teach you some of these methods.Theultimate goal in the engineering design process is to meet or exceed customer wants and needs, while reducing cost and time.Teamwork and communication are essential elements of the engineering design process. Engineers who do not know how tocommunicate and work effectively with others are ineffective designers.Learning how to communicate in the context of thedesign process and learning how to work in a team environment are integral elements of this course.COURSE OBJECTIVESThis course will teach you about the importance of teamwork and communications in the context of the engineering designprocess.Interactive professional development exercises will provide you with the knowledge and skills necessary for effectiveteamwork.Coursework is designed to challenge you to improve and expand upon your oral, written and visual communicationskills.LEARNING OUTCOMES1.Students will have the capacity to solve engineering design problems, while instilling the importance of creativity indeveloping innovative solutions.2.Students will know how to identify customer needs, establish design objectives, and translate these into engineering designspecifications.3.Students will exercise and improve important design skills of visualization, calculation, experimentation, and modeling.4.Students will have skills in organizing people and ideas for successful design.Skills include teamwork, projectmanagement, verbal and written communication, and documentation.5.Students will be able to function on multi-disciplinary teams and communicate effectively.6.Students will understand professional and ethical responsibility.
