What’s Difficult Process conceptualization for how to go from raw materials to finished products: - big picture, no more little problems to solve - many different approaches, which is best (you need to make decisions and solve problems)? - apply what you have already learned over the last 3 years - getting along with your team members - knowing when to stop Some students who never excelled in small problem classes will excel in design class; others who have done well in those classes, may find design difficult

Overall Course Learning Goal At the end of the 4520 semester, students should know exactly how to approach and carry out a 4530 design project led by an external liaison, and to perform at the high level expected by Prof. Weimer (the bar provided by the industries will actually be higher) In 4530, student performance with external liaisons directly reflects on the quality of the CU ChBE program!
