Building on the design engineering fundamentals learned in APSC-381 (prerequisite), the objective of this course is to further develop the student's design, innovation, and professional skills. Working in multi-disciplinary teams, students will engage in real-world design projects typically offered by industry based clients. While designing a product, process, or system, design processes will be applied from problem definition through validation of physical prototypes or digital/mathematical models. Professional engineering skills such as communication, teamwork, project management, engineering economics, ethics, and safety will be integral to the projects. Accompanying lectures, exercises, tutorials, and guest speakers will augment the projects.
Classes are held on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-9:30 in the Design Studio of the ILC.
