ENGR 13200 - Transforming Ideas to Innovation II Syllabus – Spring 2012 1 | P a g e Welcome to ENGR 13200! This course is designed to enable you to continue to develop the problem-solving skills that you will use as an engineer. You will also begin to learn to use computer tools to solve fundamental engineering problems. Further, you will continue to develop your teaming and communication skills - skills that you will need as an engineering student and as an engineer. Typically, students find the content and the format of this course very different from their past classes. Our aim is to help you begin to develop problem-solving strategies, computer competencies, and a professional engineering demeanor that you will need in your future engineering courses and career. We hope that this course gives you a feel for how engineers work, think, and communicate. This document includes the following sections: Course Goals Being Successful Course Prerequisites and Co-requisites Course Structure Office Hours Grading Policy Distribution of Grades Class Attendance Academic Integrity Computer Policies Adaptive Programs Campus Emergency Course Goals Successful completion of this course will enable you to use, create, and explore tools, particularly computer tools, in modeling, problem solving, and design. More specifically, this course will enable you to: Develop a logical problem solving process which includes sequential structures, conditional structures, and repetition structures for fundamental engineering problems, Translate a written problem statement into a mathematical model, Solve fundamental engineering problems using computer tools, Perform basic file management tasks using an appropriate computer tool, Employ design and problem processes in modeling, problem solving and design work, Work effectively and ethically as a member of a technical team, Develop a work ethic appropriate for the engineering profession, Evaluate and provide feedback to improve solutions to engineering problems, Reflect on personal and team performance to achieve continuous improvement, and Demonstrate an ability to engage in continuing professional development. What You Can Do To Be Successful In ENGR 13200 Take ownership of your education and learning process. Successful problem solvers have to practice and learn material on their own.

ENGR 13200 - Transforming Ideas to Innovation II Syllabus – Spring 2012 2 | P a g e Remember that you are beginning to learn a new language - the language of engineering. Most freshmen engineering students do not have a background in engineering. So when problems are placed in an engineering context that uses the language of engineering, as will occur in ENGR 13200, you may find that some problems are difficult to understand at first glance. Be an active participant in classroom activities.
