EGR 151 - Engineering Design II with Graphics
A continuation of Engineering Design I. The bulk of this course focuses on continuing to develop skills with computer aided drawing (CAD) programs and the ability to use computation software such as Excel and MatLab. Students continue working in teams on design projects with the goal of understanding and implementing the engineering design process for problem-solving. The area of engineering ethics is investigated to create in students a realization of the importance of responsible behavior in the engineering field.
Prerequisite: EGR 150 Engineering Design I with Graphics
1 Class Hour, 3 Lab Hours
Learning Outcomes of the Course:
Upon successful completion of this course the student will be able to:
1. Use a parametric CAD program to produce more complex models and use more advanced features of the program, including the export of their models to a 3-D printer.
2. More effectively use Excel and MatLab.
3. Use various techniques to formulate the problem statement as the first step of the engineering design process.
4. Define what a design contraint is, in general, and specifically, what an “ergonomic” constraint is.
5. Describe what “intellectual property” means and the methods used to protect it.
6. Discuss the role that engineering codes of ethics play in regulating the engineering profession.
7. Describe and give examples of the consequences resulting from the failure to engage in ethical behavior in engineering practice.
