APSC-101, -102, -103: Engineering Practice I

The first year of the design spine experience is built on a design and professional skills course that was originally developed as part of the faculty’s push for integrated learning in the late 1990’s. The course was developed to promote a sense of curiosity about engineering, and to facilitate creative thought through various projects and teamwork. The course is divided into the following three modules:

  • APSC 101: Problem analysis and modeling
  • APSC 102: Experimentation and measurement
  • APSC 103: Engineering design.

Each of these modules is one semester long and equivalent in weight to a standard one-semester engineering course.
