APSC-100 Engineering Practice I
The first year of the design spline 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:
- Module 1: Problem analysis and modeling
- Module 2: Experimentation and measurement
- Module 3: Engineering design.
Each of these modules is one semester long and equivalent in weight to a standard one-semester engineering course.
|Module 1||Problem Analysis and Modeling||Fall semester|
|Module 2||Experimentation and Measurement||Fall or Winter semester|
|Module 3||Engineering Design||Winter semester|
More details of this course are available on the APSC-100 website, and in published papers listed on Dr. Brian Frank’s page.
