The rationale for this course is to motivate students by fostering creativity and introducing conceptual design, sustainable design in engineering, industrial design, computer aided design and drafting early in the course. Early training and practice in the engineering design method, the introduction to engineering handbooks and commercial catalogues is necessary for a foundation to which students can relate future studies in the more advanced courses of the program. Engineers need skills in graphical communication and spatial vision in the practice of their profession.
This fundamental engineering course introduces the principles and methods of engineering design. Students will be given the opportunity to experience engineering design methods in a multi-disciplinary environment. This course involves students in a number of hands-on design and engineering projects through individual and team activities. Design/project work will be complemented with the development of the student's drafting skills and CAD expertise. In this course, students acquire skills in areas of engineering design, drafting/CAD, report writing, decision-making and problem solving.
