The fundamental principles of engineering design will be introduced and reinforced through hands-on exercises and project work. Topics will include needs assessment, design constraints, generating and assessing alternative designs, modelling and optimization, and communicating the design outcome.
Students will work in teams to complete a number of design exercises and projects, which will give students multiple opportunities to experience the design process, from definition of needs, to implementation and final testing.
There will be two major projects:
Students will be expected to provide proper documentation of their designs and of the design process that has been followed.
Lectures and lab with an emphais on small group work.
