This course aims to provide students with a hands-on, experiential learning experience, which will provide: working knowledge of contemporary engineering practice, the problem solving process, and the tools and technologies engineers employ, as well as an understanding of the design process including competition, cost, quality, scheduling and manufacturability considerations and the opportunity to practice in an actual design project - building a robot.
Over a period of six weeks, you will be exposed to five exciting engineering disciplines with a strong emphasis in technical communication, both verbal and written. Classes begin Monday, July 7th and end on Friday, August 15th.
Class meets Monday through Friday from 10:00am to 4:00pm. Classes meet for lab on Monday and Thursday from 10:00am to 12:50pm and recitation on Tuesdays and Fridays from 10:00am to 11:30am.
