Syllabus Information
ENGR 16100 - Honors Introduction To Innovation And The Physical Science Of Engineering Design I
Associated Term: Spring 2018
Learning Outcomes: 1. Discuss the engineering education process, courses, and options, explain and compare engineering job functions and roles, and use this information to prepare a moderately well-informed course of study for academic and career success (3). 2. Employ academic and career success strategies including managing your personal learning approach, using time management techniques, and demonstrating a personal growth mindset to thoughtfully pursue course activities and the course as a whole (2). 3. Plan and implement systematic design processes using formal engineering management and design tools such as work breakdown structures and House of Quality to design innovative products and systems (6). 4. Investigate and decompose systems in order to design and construct mathematical or computer models that can be employed to better understand or control the systems (6). 5. Describe a wide range of physical phenomena using a few fundamental physical laws (12). 6. Learn how to implement a unified approach that relates microscopic behavior to macroscopic behavior. These include mechanical theories based on particle, spring, and material models (10). 7. Model natural phenomena using computer simulations (5). 8. Demonstrate professional communication skills in the areas of technical writing to produce engineering reports, in presentations to convey engineering evidence and findings verbally and graphically to audiences, and in interpersonal communication to work with other members of the class (2). 9. Work alongside individuals with diverse backgrounds, utilizing the team environment to learn interdependently, give and demand accountability, and accomplish engineering tasks, while recognizing teaming as an open-ended problem that needs to be actively managed and reflected upon (3). 10. Evaluate engineering problems to reach evidence-based conclusions, drawing upon one or more sources of information and data interpretation skills including interpolation, regression, curve fitting, statistics, and data cleaning (5). 11. Incorporate the consideration of engineering ethics, including social, safety, and sustainability issues into instances of engineering thinking and engineering problem solving so that the broader impacts of engineering work are evaluated and accounted for (3). 12. Apply fundamental engineering skills and knowledge relating to units, dimensions, estimation, visualization, significant digits, and the problem presentation method to engineering applications (2). 13. Display proficiency in the applications of engineering content knowledge including basic statistics (5).
