Introduction to Engineering
This course provides students with an overview of engineering based on a "hands-on" experience with a client-centered engineering design project, which includes: 1) a team-based design project, 2) a survey of engineering disciplines, 3) an introduction to computer tools and lab techniques, and 4) management of a project budget. Instruction will include an introduction to technical fabrication skills required to produce a prototype design product. This course is intended for students intending to transfer to four-year engineering degree programs. Prerequisite: Students must have previously completed a minimum of 12 credits of college transfer course work, including 20-804-231 Calculus and Analytic Geometry, with a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or more.
