ENGR 5000 - Engineering Senior Design Ics

In this first capstone course, engineering students will apply knowledge and skills learned in their undergraduate engineering curriculum toward a proposed project approved by the faculty advisor to study, analyze, design, build and test concepts in a field of their choosing. Elements of the design process are considered as well as real-world constraints, such as economic and societal factors, marketability, ergonomics, safety, aesthetics and ethics. Pre-requisites: senior class standing and MGMT3200, Engineering Economy. 

Course Objectives

  1. Demonstrate proof-of-concept of a design or hypothesis towards a unique solution to a relevant societal problem.

  2. Follow iterative design process, including alternative designs.

  3. Demonstrate project planning (tasks, timelines, identification of resources).

  4. Effectively communicate to a range of audiences regarding the project (e.g. written, oral).

  5. Demonstrate team-working skills on an engineering design project.

  6.   Search and utilize project-related scholarly literature.

Student Outcomes

(2) An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.

(4) An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
