ENGG 143D - Design of Multidisciplinary Engineering SystemsSemester Hours: 3
This course provides a meaningful culminating experience that introduces students to the multidisciplinary aspects of design, incorporating electronics and computer control within mechanical systems. The design process (i.e., need definition and evaluation; synthesis including development of alternative concepts; analysis including physical and mathematical modeling, simulation, and optimization; and detailed design) is learned through an engineering case study of an actual multidisciplinary product. The students, working in small teams, simultaneously apply the design process in the context of an open-ended engineering problem. Professional development in areas of leadership, team dynamics, interpersonal relationships, technical communications, and project management is emphasized. Oral presentations are required and the course is writing intensive. 2 hours lecture, 2 hours lab.
ENGG 142 or permission of instructor. No liberal arts credit. (Formerly Mechanical Engineering Design.)
