APSC 381: Fundamentals of Design Engineering

Successful engineering design requires a broad combination of knowledge and skills, as well as an ability to work and communicate across engineering disciplines. Based on industry practice, the objective of this multidisciplinary course is to provide the student with a sound background in engineering design methodology and supportive design "tools." A broad range of topics spanning problem definition through design validation and implementation will be covered. Relevant and realistic supporting exercises and assignments will regularly augment the lecture material. Students will work in multi-disciplinary teams, simulating the real-world design engineering environment. This course will provide sound footing for the 4th year design projects in any program.
