ENGG 016 - Comprehensive Engineering Design

Semester Hours: 3
Spring
A comprehensive study of engineering design. A review of the stages of the life of a product and the stages of the engineering design process.  Incorporating engineering design best practices early in the process to help design quality into a product. Analysis of “Design for X” (DFX), where “X” is a host of design objectives, such as safety, durability, human factors, efficiency, material selection, sustainability, maintenance, cost, weight, etc. Design placed in the broader, more comprehensive contexts of historical, societal, cultural, business, political, environmental, and stakeholder considerations. Critical analysis of engineering design by examination of standard engineering codes, technological revolutions, case studies, and review sessions with practicing engineers. Inventive problem-solving tools for breakthrough thinking will be integrated with the process by which ideas originate and are developed into workable products within the broad and comprehensive context of real-world engineering practice.
