ENGR 13100 Fall 2019 Page 1 of 10 Transforming Ideas to Innovation I – Syllabus Course Overview Engineering and engineers are very diverse. In ENGR 13100, you will begin to develop a wide variety of skills that will benefit you as a Purdue student and that you can build on as a practicing engineer. Course Outcomes In ENGR 13100, you will: •develop and evaluate mathematical models to describe or predict outcomes associated with engineering decisions. •use a systematic design process to develop innovative solutions to engineering challenges, compare design alternatives, and gather and use evidence for decision making. •examine and analyze information from various engineering schools at Purdue to make informed decisions about your choice of an engineering major. •practice making evidence-based engineering decisions. •work in diverse teams. •develop professional habits including professional communication, teamwork, and information literacy that will benefit you both as a student at Purdue and as a practicing engineer. Learning Objectives At the end of this class, you will be able to: •Visually represent data and derive meaningful information from data. •Demonstrate an understanding of key engineering concepts such as mass and energy conservation and schematic modeling of engineering systems. •Generate ideas fluently. Take risks when necessary. •Develop a problem statement from the perspective of stakeholders. Refine the problem statement as additional information is found through the process of design. •Use evidence to develop and optimize solution. Evaluate solutions, test and optimize chosen solution based on evidence. •Design final solution to be of high technical quality. Design final solution to meet client and user needs. •Reflect on both personal and team's problem solving/design approach and process for the purpose of continuous improvement. •Communicate engineering concepts, ideas and decisions effectively and professionally in diverse ways such as written, visual and oral. •Contribute to team products and discussions •Seek, find, use, and document appropriate and trustworthy information •Recognize how contemporary issues as part of cultural, economic and environmental factors impact engineering design and practice.
