EGR 287 L - Engineering Design III
This course is the third course in a four course design sequence. This course is intended to prepare engineering students for the future challenges of design. Design is presented as the integration of creativity, knowledge, skills, collaboration and hard work to solve problems. Emphasis will be on achieving design solutions that are high quality, innovative, low cost, and produced quickly. The design process provides a structure in which the various phases of design occur in a logical and efficient sequence in order to arrive at the most successful outcome. This course will present the best of traditional design practices as well as several design tools. Creativity methods will be presented and creativity encouraged in the course. Group design projects with oral presentations are required as part of this course.
